What is Measles?


Many measles outbreaks occur when travellers become infected while overseas and then spread the virus when they return to Australia. Travellers should know their measles immune-status. Unless there is a history of confirmed measles in the past, or documentary evidence of two measles vaccinations, then measles vaccination is recommended for all travellers, providing there are no contra-indications to having the vaccine.
