Unvaccinated adults and travellers are the main source of contagion and the Government is prompting this part of the population to check that their vaccination is up to date.

Robert Booy, Professor in Child and Adolescent Health from Sydney Medical School, joins Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to discuss the outbreak and the preventive actions towards the disease.
