- avoiding close contact with live or dead farm or wild animals;
- travellers with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands).

NSW is urging all NSW residents to ensure they are fully protected against measles. Since December 2018, there have been 36 infectious cases of measles in NSW.
Who should be vaccinated?
- Infants should be vaccinated routinely at 12 and 18 months of age
- Any person born during or after 1966 should have two documented doses of measles-containing
vaccine – there is no need to perform serology prior to vaccination
- Measles vaccine is safe – if patients are not sure if they’ve had two prior doses it is
recommended to offer one or two doses 4 weeks apart (depending on their history)
- All doses of measles vaccine are FREE in NSW, including for infants, children and adults up to
53 years of age (irrespective of whether they hold a Medicare card)
- Ensure that you and your staff are also fully vaccinated if born during or after 1966

be vaccinated from 6 months of age. These infants still need two further doses at 12 and 18 months
of age, commencing at least 4 weeks after the pre-travel dose.
