Measles outbreak in The Hague

Some 24 children in The Hague have been diagnosed with measles, news agency ANP said on Tuesday.

‘The children are primarily from a group who are not vaccinated,’ a spokeswoman for the local health service was reported as saying.
In the Netherlands children are vaccinated against measles at 14 months and 9 years. Some 13% of children in The Hague have not had a top-up injection, ANP said.
