"The vaccine gives good protection, and in the case of developing symptoms, a quick visit to a doctor, examinations and early initiation of effective treatment are necessary," advised the director of the NCZPB.

She specified that in our country there have been isolated cases of measles in recent years and the situation is calm at the moment.
