All eligible Chicago migrant shelter residents were vaccinated for measles in a ‘unprecedented operation.’

The Chicago Department of Public Health said Wednesday that all eligible migrants at a measles-infected temporary shelter have been vaccinated.

Last Thursday, the city reported its first measles case since 2019. Illinois is one of 17 states

with measles cases this year, according to the CDC. The initial epidemic case was unrelated to the shelter.

On Wednesday, the Chicago Department of Public Health reported two more instances of measles in children, bringing the city's total to 10.

A Chicago Public Schools official said Thursday that one of the children attends Cooper Dual Language
