Kings Of Leon Fans Urged To Get Vaccinated Against Measles

The Washington State department of Health is telling Kings Of Leon fans they might have the measles.

Kings of Leon played a show at the Key Arena in Seattle on March 28th, and Washington State Health officials are now warning people who attended the concert to get vaccinated against measles.

In a statement officials said, ” A person who was confirmed with measles traveled to several western Washington public locations while contagious… Measles is highly contagious and can cause severe illness with rash, fever, cough, eye irritation, and can be fatal.”

“Anyone who was in those locations at the listed times should find out if they have been vaccinated for measles or have had measles previously. If you’re not vaccinated, you can get the measles just by walking into a room where someone with the disease has been in the past couple of hours,” the statement continuted.

Most people are vaccinated against the virus at a young age, and the risk to the public at large is very low.
