Have you got family health insurance in place to ensure that your loved ones receive the appropriate medical treatment and care?
NSW Health is urging people to make sure that their family members are properly immunised against measles after public health experts expressed concern about the "largest measles outbreak in more than a decade", with numbers continuing to climb.
"Measles is a nasty infection which is preventable through vaccination," said NSW Health director for health protection Dr Jeremy McAnulty.
The virus is highly contagious and can be spread by being in the same room with someone who carries the disease.
NSW has had a spike in measles cases since the start of June, with 95 confirmed cases of the serious virus over the past four months in Campbelltown and Liverpool.
"Anyone with symptoms of measles should not to go school, work or go out in public. Anyone who thinks they might be infected should see a doctor, but call ahead to make sure they don’t infect others at the doctor’s surgery," said Dr McAnulty.
Getting organised with Australian health insurance can help to ensure that you are keeping your health and wellbeing a top priority.
