Sixteenth measles case confirmed in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS (WAVE) – Indiana health officials have confirmed a sixteenth case of the measles in the state.

Officials are working to contact people who may have been exposed at a recreation facility north of Indianapolis.

The measles outbreak coincides with huge crowds visiting the area when Indianapolis hosted the Super Bowl activities.

Most measles cases in the U.S. can be traced to unvaccinated travelers who came in contact with large groups of people.

Health officials are urging parents to make sure their children are immunized if they haven't already been given the vaccine.
