Confirmed measles case potentially exposes people in nine Cochrane and Calgary locations
Alberta Health Services is offering immunizations today (March 15) to those potentially exposed to measles on March 12 at Cabela's (12:45 to 3 p.m.), RE:GRUB Deerfoot City (1 to 3:45 p.m.) or Bella Concert Hall (7:15 to 11:45 p.m.) in Calgary.

Those exposed on that date, during the specified timeframes at each location, AND who have no history of receiving any measles-containing vaccine, are offered preventative immunizations from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Brentwood Mall AHS Immunization Clinic.

It is imperative that only those who are eligible, as per the exposure criteria, attend this clinic to ensure AHS has the opportunity to immunize those who can still benefit at this time.

Read the story for full details on exposure locations and timeframes in Cochrane and Calgary and for information on symptoms to watch for and procedures to follow if you believe you were exposed and are developing measles.
