PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — Two additional measles cases in Allegheny County. They are within the same family in which four cases had previously been diagnosed.

The two members are unvaccinated adults. They have not been in any public spaces because of the quarantine orders on the family.

The total number of measles cases in the county is now seven, with six of the cases coming from one family.

The county is offering a limited supply of free measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccines at its Downtown walk-in clinic this week for those at higher risk of contracting measles.

That designation includes children from 12 months of age to adults 61 years of age who have not been vaccinated. There is no risk in getting an additional dose of the MMR vaccine for individuals who may have already received it.

The walk-in immunization clinic is located at 425 First Avenue, Fourth Floor. The entrance is along Cherry Way.

The clinic is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Wednesday from 1 to 8 p.m.
