BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It's an outbreak health experts haven't seen in nearly a decade and they want you to be on high alert.
According to the Center for Disease Control, 129 cases of the Measles have been reported across the country and we're only a third of the way through the year.
Doctors want you to keep a lookout for symptoms including high fever, red eyes, rash and cough.
California is currently the hardest hit state with 58 victims, but no cases have been recorded in Kern County.
Public Health Officer Claudia Jonah said that doesn't mean we're immune and we have had some close calls.
"We had some people who have come through our community during a time when they would've been infectious" Jonah said.
The Philippines is struggling with a much bigger battle right now with 20,000 victims.
Kern County is home to one of the state's highest Filipino populations and with traveling now faster and easier than ever, local health experts want you to ensure you're entire family is protected.
Children are the most susceptible to the airborne disease.
