A vaccination clinic will be set up at the University of Queensland (UQ) after a fourth measles case was confirmed.

The student attended lectures at the St Lucia campus last week with another student who had contracted the illness.

They also had visited a pub and a shopping centre when they were unaware they were infectious.

The person visited:

  • University of Queensland, St Lucia, Tuesday 11/8 & Wednesday 19/8
  • Indooroopilly Shopping Centre Thursday 13/8
  • The Royal Exchange Hotel Saturday 15/8
  • Taringa Day & Night Medical Centre evening of Sunday 16/8

Metro North Public Health Unit will set up a vaccination clinic at UQ’s St Lucia Campus this week and students who live in the university’s colleges are urged to get vaccinated if they’re unsure of their status.

Queensland Health has put out an alert telling students and others who were in the above premises to be alert for measles symptoms.

This is the fourth Queensland measles alert in the last month. The first was from a UQ student who contracted the disease overseas in July.
