What to do if you feel you may have the measles
If you suspect that you may have the measles, please call (509) 773-4022 to coming to the hospital or clinic so appropriate precautions can be taken to prevent further transmission.
If you are unsure about your immunity status against the measles, a simple blood test called a titer can determine if you are immune or not. As a community service, Klickitat Valley Health is offering this test at a discounted rate of $25. No appointment, fasting or doctor order is necessary. Patients may check in at the main hospital registration desk and simply request a measles blood test. You will be contacted with your results within 3 business days. If it is determined that you are not immune to the measles, immunization may be available at our Family Medicine clinic, dependent on supply.
