In 2015, ameasles outbreak amongst children occurred in Styria that totaled 19cases, all of which were thoroughly documented. Retrospectively, the vaccination status and the guardian's vaccination opinion were investigated. The measles population was compared with the population of the Styrian vaccination database and significantly showed that the measles vaccination prevents the disease. Furthermore, an anti-vaccinationist rate of 82% was found in the unvaccinated measles population. Adocumentable chain of transmission with five chain-links was shown, as well as specific problems that facilitated outbreaks. Measures are discussed to close vaccination gaps and prevent future outbreaks.
