To the Editor: Despite high vaccination coverage, Australians remain at risk of measles, mumps and rubella, either while travelling to endemic countries or from domestic exposure to imported cases. Those most at risk include incompletely vaccinated adults and children whose parents choose not to have them vaccinated. Additionally, immunity generated by vaccination (rather than natural infection) may be less protective, especially if only one vaccine dose is received.1,2
