It was just over a month ago that the California Department of Public Health first announced that people contracted measles while visiting the Disney theme parks in Anaheim.

Since then, KPCC’s Measles Team has been trying to provide you with information and context about this disease, which has now sickened more than 100 people in California and spread across the country.

Still, we know that many of you have more questions and concerns about how to keep yourselves, and your loved ones, safe and healthy during this outbreak.

I recently answered a few questions on Take Two. But more questions have flooded in, in the comment sections of stories and via social media. (Thank you for your responses!)

So we wanted to give you another chance to ask questions about measles, and get them answered.

If you have a question about measles, the vaccine, or this outbreak, let us know in the comments section below. If you definitely want your question answered, you should also e-mail us at Please include a telephone number where we can reach you.

And then tune in to Take Two on Wednesday; I'll answer as many of your questions as time allows.
