Measles is highly contagious and can spread quickly and easily through breathing, sneezing and coughing. People who are not immune to measles can catch the disease just by being in the same room as someone who has it.
“It is important to be aware of the symptoms of measles and what to do if you think you or a family member has measles. If you were exposed look out for fever and a runny nose, or cough, or sore red eyes. After a few days a red blotchy rash develops and lasts up to one week. The rash usually starts on the face and spreads to the rest of the body.” Waikato DHB Medical Officer
The best form of protection is immunisation with two MMRs. Anyone born after 1 January 1969 who does not have records of two measles immunisations or a blood test showing immunity should catch up on MMR at their GP now” he says. MMR catch up is free
