MeaslesSince November 2018, the media have been alerting the pubic of a Measles outbreak in NSW.

Measles is a serious and highly contagious air bourne and contact disease that can be prevented by the MMR vaccine (which protect against Measles, Mumps and Rubella). All Children and adults born during or after 1966 should be vaccinated with 2 doses of this vaccine. Unfortunately, children under 1 are most susceptible to this disease as the first scheduled vaccine isn’t until 12 months of age. These vaccines are government funded and are free to patients. If you are unsure of your immunity, this can be checked by your GP with a simple blood test.

For further information on Measles such as the symptoms, how it can be treated, more details on Measles immunisation and who is most at risk, you can follow the provided links below which will take you to the NSW Health site and also the NCIRS (National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance).
