Measles is a highly contagious disease.  In the event of an outbreak the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) will take steps to limit the spread of the disease.  As part of their efforts, if an outbreak occurs on our campus DHEC will require all faculty and staff to prove measles immunity. Individuals unable to provide proof of immunization will not be allowed to report to work if they work in an outbreak area as identified by DHEC.

The Centers for Disease Control consider you protected if you have written documentation of at least one of the following:

  • You were born before 1957.
  • A laboratory confirmed that you are immune to measles.
  • A laboratory confirmed that you had measles at some point in your life.
  • You are an adult who received two doses of measles-containing vaccine after the age of one.

If you were born during or after 1957 and do not know whether you have been fully vaccinated or had the blood test, it is recommended that you contact your health care provider. 

Depending on your health care coverage you may be eligible to receive the vaccination at no cost.  

  • Adult vaccinations, at intervals recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, are covered at no cost to Savings Plan, Standard Plan and Medicare Supplemental Plan members at participating providers. Coverage includes the cost of the vaccine and administration fee if the member receives the shot in a network doctor’s office. Any associated office visit charges will follow regular Plan coverage rules.
  • Adult Vaccinations, at intervals recommend by the Centers for Disease Control, are also covered by the State Health Plan for primary members if obtained from a network pharmacy.

The vaccination is also being made available to faculty and staff at a reduced cost by the Division of Student Affairs’ Student Health Services Office. (Blood test $29, MMR Vaccine $75)

Faculty and staff are not required to submit their records.  Records storage is offered as a courtesy to faculty and staff.  This storage complies with all HIPPA regulations concerning medical records and provides a convenient way to quickly and safely meet any reporting requirements should a measles outbreak occur.

Faculty should communicate with their department chair to determine acceptable alternative work assignments, including the potential to work remotely. 

Staff should coordinate with their supervisor to determine if it is possible to work remotely. 

Approval for remote work assignments will be given on a case-by-case basis and will depend on the nature of the work and available resources.

Personnel who are not able to work remotely will be required to take sick leave, annual leave, leave without pay, or a combination of these options until the exclusion period has passed.

Personnel who have been excluded, but who can subsequently show proof of effective immunization, may be allowed to return to campus.  For the measles vaccine to work, the body needs time to produce protective antibodies in response to the vaccine. Detectable antibodies generally appear within just a few days after vaccination. People are usually fully protected after about 2 or 3 weeks.
