Anyone who has not received two doses of the MMR vaccine is vulnerable to the highly contagious disease.

If you have received two doses of MMR or measles-containing vaccine, have had measles, or were born before 1957, you are considered immune against measles. Measles symptoms include rash, high fever, cough, runny nose and red, watery eyes.

"We'd also encourage people to ensure they are up to date with their MMR vaccine before travelling to countries with ongoing measles outbreaks".

PHE is advising that anyone who has not received two doses of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine is most at risk, while youngsters coming into close contact with each other in environments such as festivals are more at risk, as well as unvaccinated people travelling to Romania and Italy, where there are now large outbreaks.

Measles is highly infectious and can lead to serious complications and, in rare cases, death. The illness is easily spread through the air when a patient coughs or sneezes, or when a person comes into contact with mucus or saliva from an infected person.

A dose of the measles vaccine is recommended for anyone planning an worldwide trip, including adults or adolescents unsure of their immune status.
