The CDC has issued a measles travel warning

NBC NEWS – A new report from the Centers for Disease Control raises concern that travelers visiting Europe may not only take home memories, but possibly new measles cases as well.

Health experts say the region is experiencing a measles rash that rose 300 percent over the same period last year in the first three months of this year.

The majority are in the Ukraine, but high numbers are also reported in France, Greece and Italy, which endanger unvaccinated travelers.

"When these international travelers from the US, like the European region, go abroad and return home, they also spread the disease to people who are under- or un-immunized in the US," warns CDC infectious disease specialist Dr. med. Kristina Angelo.

The cases in the United States are already at their highest level since 1992.

The CDC advises travelers to get vaccinated at least four weeks before travel, and babies between 6 and 11 months should receive an additional dose early.
