Euro 2012 fans warned of measles risk
Ukraine is telling people travelling to the country for the European Championship this summer to make sure they are vaccinated against measles.
Deputy Head of the state sanitary and epidemiology service, Oleksandr Kravchuk, said: "The situation with measles is unfavourable in our country.
"If you plan to come to Ukraine, please get vaccinated at home."
Last month The European Centre of Disease Prevention and Control reported that there is a measles outbreak in the country affecting over 5,000 people, which is "expected to accelerate and spread geographically during the peak transmission season for measles from February to June".
Currently the outbreak is in the western part of the country, bordering Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.
It would also be advisable for anyone travelling to Ukraine with a pre-existing medical condition to ensure they have adequate
medical travel insurance before heading abroad.
