Measles is a highly contagious infectious disease that can spread from person to person through coughing and sneezing. If one person has measles, up to 90% of those who come into contact with that person and who are not immune can also become infected, according to the CDC. The CDC recommends two doses of measles vaccine routinely for children, starting with the first dose at age 12 through 15 months and the second dose at age 4 through 6 years before school entry.
