The Illness

The initial symptoms are similar to the common cold with runny nose, cough, red and watery eyes and fever. This is followed by a rash, which spreads throughout the body.
Complications of measles tend to occur in children under 5 years or adults over 20 years and include encephalitis (infection of the brain) and pneumonia (infection of the lungs).

Treatment

There is no specific treatment for measles.

The vaccine is effective at preventing all three illnesses and can be given from 12 months of age. It is particularly important to check if you are vaccinated against MMR before travelling as infection is prevalent in Asia, Africa and South America.

Because the illness is easily transmitted through air, MMR immunity is necessary for certain jobs.
Book now at your local CityDoc clinic to get your MMR vaccination, whether for travel or occupational purposes.
