Immunisation against measles is the most effective way to prevent the disease. If you have not had a measles vaccination (usually given together with mumps and rubella vaccines as MMR vaccine), and would like to have such protection before travelling to affected areas, it is best to consult a doctor to discuss the need. A blood test may be required prior to your vaccination if you are not sure about your antibody status.
The MMR vaccines are now reserved for those who are on our waiting list as the supply is limited. We urge travellers to monitor the situation, exercise caution when travelling to the affected area.
