According to AZDHS, Measles spreads through the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes, and symptoms typically appear seven 12 days after exposure, but can take up to 21 days to appear in some cases. These are followed by a rash, which starts first on the face and neck, spreads to the chest, arms and legs, and lasts for at least three days.

If you are planning on attending a doctor's office or hospital and think you may have been exposed, call ahead so the office and hospital can plan to prevent further potential exposure.

It said the best protection from the disease was for people to have two doses (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccinations.

Vaccines are free at community health centres.

Director of Public Health Dr Caroline McElnay said only 80 percent of teenagers and young adults had received the full course of the vaccine.

Complications from the illness can include pneumonia, inflammation of the brain, convulsions, deafness, brain damage and death.
