"This is followed by a blotchy red rash, which often starts on the face before becoming widespread.

"Symptoms usually start around seven to 10 days after contact with a person with measles butsometimes longer.

"Anyone who develops measles-like symptoms within the next fortnight should contact their GP for advice.

"If people are adequately vaccinated with two recorded doses of Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine, they are very unlikely to get the disease.

"Those who are unsure or have concerns about their immunity to measles should contact their doctor to check whether they have had two doses of the vaccine.

About 30 per cent of adults with measles will be hospitalised and Queensland Health offers free vaccines to anyone who was born in 1966 or later and who have not had two doses of the MMR vaccine.
