A baby was hospitalized at the Mayanei Hayeshua Medical Center, in Bnei Brak, after contracting measles from his mother a week after his birth.

The mother was not inoculated and probably contracted the illness of a family member.

The three-week-old baby was hospitalized on Friday.

"Measles at such a tender age are rare," said Dr. Eli Somekh, Head of the Division of Pediatrics. "There are few reports of morbidity at this age because most babies of this age are protected by the transmission of antibodies from their mother, nor are they usually exposed to measles in the immediate vicinity."

Somekh added that women must complete vaccination before pregnancy, including the measles vaccine.

It was also reported on Sunday that a flight from Bucharest to Israel on Tuesday had pbadengers infected with measles.
