Given the large worldwide incidence and high transmissibility of the disease, travelers can be exposed to the virus in almost any country they visit! All persons born after 1963 who do not have documented protection against the infection (antibodies or 2 documented vaccinations) should be vaccinated twice with MMR vaccine. In the event of an epidemic in the region or contact with a measles case, vaccination is recommended from the age of 6 months. Have your measles protection checked, e.g. as part of a travel medicine consultation!
