PASSENGERS who flew from Indonesia to Brisbane last Wednesday are being urged to contact their GP if they feel unwell after three people on the flight contracted measles.

Queensland Health has called on all passengers who flew on Jetstar Airlines flight JQ46, which left Denpasar on October 15, to carefully monitor for symptoms of the highly contagious disease.

I work in a hospital, and measles scares are becoming more and more common due to 'alternative' parents who don't 'believe' in vaccinations. It's so frustrating. Whether or not one believes in vaccinations is beside the point.. the diseases we vaccinate for are real, and in many cases making a comeback.

I'm old enough to have grown up when catching measles and mumps was part of childhood. I remember my brother getting mumps as an 8 year old and I was 4. I still remember his moon face and I got into trouble for laughing at him.

I never caught mumps or measles and only caught chickenpox when I was 35. My immune system works in overdrive and I have an autoimmune disease. It went to war on my thyroid and now I don't have one that functions. I always wonder if the two are linked (not getting childhood diseases and overactive immune system).
