Parents are reminded to be extra vigilant.
Today the HSE has advised if anyone believes they may have symptoms of measles to stay at home and contact their doctor.
According to RTÉ, the warning comes as the health services have been informed of two cases of measles in north Dublin and the source of the outbreak has not yet been identified.
The HSE has also stated that those most at risk of contracting measles are babies under 12 months of age who cannot yet get their vaccination, those with weakened immune systems and those who haven’t received their second dose of the MMR vaccine as the best safety guard against the virus is to be fully vaccinated according to the services.
