Cause of vaccine associated measles five weeks post immunization.
British Columbia, Canada, 2013
“The incubation period of measles is typically eight to 12 days from exposure to rash onset, with a range from seven to 21 days. Public health interventions are based on this established incubation period for determining the epidemiological links between cases and for esti-mating periods of exclusion for contacts in high risk settings [5,6]. Based on our review of the literature, this report documents the first case of MMR vaccine-associated measles, 37 days post-immunisation, well beyond 21 days and the routine 30 days post-MMR immunisation period used by the Canadian adverse event following immunization (AEFI) surveillance system.”

Comparison of Wild Type and Vaccine Strain Measles
Modified measles can also occur in persons with some degree of immunity, as well as in previously vaccinated persons, who get a milder form of measles. “Atypical” measles can occur in a person, who was previously vaccinated with a killed-virus vaccine used from 1963 to 1967, and who is exposed to wild-type measles. The course of atypical measles is generally longer than natural measles.

This ad is a great example of what measles really looks like, fairly mild. It looks even milder on a darker skinned child. However, if you google measles you will see obviously edited pictures that emphasize the rash). The lack of severity makes this fear-mongering ad kind of funny.
