Abstract

During a three-month period in spring 2011, 23 cases of measles occurred in seven independent outbreaks in a region in Spain with around 700,000 inhabitants, where the disease had been eliminated since 1997. High vaccination coverage and rapid diagnosis allowed implementation of containment measures and this prevented spread of the disease. Except for the first outbreak which affected 10 cases, each of the other six outbreaks caused a maximum of three secondary cases.
