In the U.S., 228 individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 12 states, by the CDC, between January 1 to March 7, 2019.

Hill said primary health workers consistently urged people to get vaccinations on time, and were happy to catch up with any children behind schedule at any time, "including at times of potential exposure".

Dr Weir said MidCentral GPs were maintaining a normal level of vaccine stocks, although some GPs in Palmerston North had experienced an increase in demand for vaccinations.

There was information about how to avoid the spread of measles on the board's website, and early childhood centres and schools had been alerted to where to find advice.

"Measles is a very serious illness and the only way to prevent its spread is immunisation".

"People planning to travel overseas should make sure they are protected from measles".

The CDC says the majority of cases involve people who were not vaccinated against measles. If unimmunised people are exposed to measles, they also risk spreading the virus to vulnerable people, including babies, pregnant women, cancer patients and others who are unable to be immunised.

The symptoms of measles symptoms are a cough or runny nose or conjunctivitis, and a fever above 38.5 C, and a rash.

"If you think you may have measles, stay at home and phone your GP for advice". "It is very important you tell your GP that you think you might have measles before going in to the surgery".
