Rapid risk assessment: Risk of measles transmission in the EU/EEA

Risk assessment

European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control. Risk of measles transmission in the EU/EEA, 21 March 2018. Stockholm, ECDC. 2018.

Given the current extent of measles circulation in the EU/EEA, the trend in recent years, and the fact that vaccination coverage for the first and second dose is suboptimal, there is a high risk of continued measles transmission with mutual exportation and importation between EU/EEA Member States and third countries.
