HEALTH authorities have confirmed the woman at the centre of a Hunter measles alert had been vaccinated for the disease.
The Newcastle Heraldreported on Wednesday that the Macquarie University law student aged in her 20s had unknowingly exposed people in parts of the Hunter and Sydney to the highly-contagious condition.
"Two doses of measles vaccine provides lifelong protection in 99 out of 100 people who are vaccinated," NSW Health said in a statement on Thursday.
"While the risk of infection is low in fully-vaccinated people, health experts urge anyone who comes into contact with someone who has measles to remain alert for symptoms."
The woman visited Hunter Valley Grammar School, Maitland train station and Lavenders Riverside Café during her travels. She also visited Seraphine Café at Maitland Art Gallery, Rutherford Homemakers Centre and Maitland Hospital.
People who visited those locations during the same time period as the law student (see times in list below) are advised to watch for symptoms until April 24.
None of the locations visited by the woman pose an ongoing risk.
NSW has had 35 measles notifications since Christmas.
