FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Kentucky health officials have confirmed a second measles case in the state.
It is a sibling case to a case reported in February involving an unvaccinated child. That child traveled to a country where measles is endemic.
Measles is considered the most deadly of all childhood rash and fever illnesses, but it can be prevented with vaccination.
The measles vaccine is given to children at 12-15 months and again at 4-6 years of age.
