Europe - Measles

With outbreaks of measles continuing across Europe, travel increases the risk for exposure to measles virus and its further spread into susceptible populations if not vaccinated. WHO encourages health authorities and travel health professionals to advocate for immunization before travel to, from or within Europe, and to provide vaccination for travellers without evidence of existing immunity.

More information can be consulted on the WHO's Disease Outbreak news and in the WHO's International Travel and Health book, Chapter 6 below.
