BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Health officials in Calhoun County are trying to determine if an eight-month old child from Battle Creek has come down with measles.

County health department health officer Jim Rutherford says the child and its family recently went to Pakistan, and the infant is being treated at Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo.  The child is too young to be vaccinated against measles, as the measles-mumps-rubella shot is not allowed until one year of age.

The illness has not yet been confirmed.
