"It is kind of scary because its not something that's been seen in a long time," said Meg Jones. Jones lives in Fyffe. That means she's less than an hour away from Tennessee or Georgia, two states that are dealing with confirmed measles cases. The Alabama Department of Public Health says a single case of measles can spread and lead to 18 more cases. That's why they're encouraging parents to make sure their kids are vaccinated.
