Fresh measles cases have been reported in Powys and Cardiff. A public health expert warned tens of thousands of children could be at risk.
Public Health Wales has information and advice on measles - a highly-infectious viral illness which can have life-threatening complications.
Smoking causes one in five deaths and over 27,000 hospital admissions each year, according to a new report.
Public Health Wales has warned that the continuing spread of measles is 'very concerning', adding that it is 'simply not worth the risk' to remain unvaccinated.
– Dr Jörg Hoffmann, Consultant in Communicable Disease Control for Public Health Wales
This is a potentially nasty infection that can easily be prevented with a safe, effective vaccine and we would not see measles in Wales if enough children and young people were vaccinated.
Uptake of the MMR vaccine in small children is the highest it’s ever been in Wales but we still have a large number of children and teenagers aged 10 to 18 who are not vaccinated.
Our message to them and their parents is that they are at risk from an infection that hospitalised 88 people earlier this year in Wales and killed one person.
Three new cases of measles have been reported in the Neath and Swansea area.
There are now 39 confirmed cases in the latest outbreak, which has affected four schools in the region.
Yesterday Public Health Wales and three local health boards published their report into the biggest outbreak of measles in Wales since the introduction of the MMR vaccination.
It said a 'get tough' approach was needed to stamp out the illness, which it described as 'very serious'.
Over 1,202 people have contracted measles since November last year, with one fatality and 88 hospitalised.
The findings of a report into last year's measles outbreak centred on Swansea are due to be outlined later. The outbreak began in November 2012 and didn't end until July. The report is expected to recommend measures to prevent a future outbreak.
A new Cardiff school which closed after just three days due to the presence of legionella bacteria will reopen tomorrow.
Eastern High, dubbed a 'super school', brings together 1,500 pupils from the former Rumney and Llanrumney high schools.
– Eastern High School statement
Eastern High will reopen to all pupils tomorrow, Wednesday, September 18.
The school was closed last week in order for essential maintenance work to be carried out following the discovery of legionella bacteria during a routine test at the school.
The work is now complete and the school can now reopen.
We apologise for the inconvenience this caused.
A new 'super school' in Cardiff will remain closed again today following the discovery of legionella bacteria on the site.
Eastern High School, which shut on Thursday, had only been open three days before a routine test found the bacteria that causes Legionnaires' Disease on the site.
Public health officials say that there is a low risk to health and the school is expected to reopen tomorrow.
Eastern High brings together 1,500 pupils from the former Rumney and Llanrumney high schools.
On its website, the school says that pupils in Years 7 and 11 are taking lessons at nearby Llanederyn High School, while work is being posted on the school's website for Years 8,9 and 10 to follow.

– Eastern High School statement
The school will need to remain closed tomorrow in order for essential maintenance work to be continued following the discovery of legionella bacteria during a routine test at the school.
Work is continuing on the school’s water system, and we expect the school to open on Wednesday, September 18th. We will give a further update on this tomorrow.
The legionella bacteria is of low risk to health and is commonly present in the environment. It cannot be transmitted from person to person or as a result of drinking water or hand washing.
We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.
The school said pupils in Years 7 and 11 are instead taking lessons on the site of Llanedeyrn High School, while work is being posted on the school's website for Years 8, 9 and 10 to follow.
One of Cardiff's newest schools will remain closed today after the bug responsible for Legionnaires disease was found at the site.
Eastern High School was shut last Wednesday when routine tests found traces of the bug, but officials insist the bacteria is a low risk to health.
– Eastern High School
The legionella bacteria is of low risk to health and is commonly present in the environment but the school's water system does need to be chlorinated thoroughly as a result.
We have been speaking with health care professionals, who have assured us that Legionnaires' Disease, which can arise as a result of this bacteria, cannot be transmitted from person to person or as a result of drinking water or hand washing.
As a precaution, due to the work which needs to be undertaken and the disruption this will cause to the school, it will remain closed until further notice.
Around 1,500 pupils were told to stay at home today after a 'super school' in Cardiff was forced to close for emergency maintenance work - just three days after it opened.
The school said legionella bacteria had been discovered in its water system during a routine test.
The bug is responsible for Legionnaires' Disease, although health officials have stressed the bacteria is of low risk to health.

A Salmonella outbreak in Conwy and Gwynedd could be linked to the consumption of cooked ham, an investigation has shown.
So far 51 people, aged between seven months and 87 years old, have been affected by the outbreak, which was originally detected in August.
One new case in Wales has been identified, meaning there are 21 laboratory confirmed and two probable cases here.
There are 30 laboratory confirmed cases in England.
Nine people have required hospital treatment as a result of the illness.
– Dr Judy Hart, Consultant in Communicable Disease Control for Public Health Wales
The strain of Salmonella we are investigating is very unusual so it is highly unlikely that the cases in England and Wales are coincidence.
Testing has been carried out on ham supplied to a number of butchers identified as part of the investigation. No trace of Salmonella has been found, but other hygiene issues were identified that led to one supplier voluntarily withdrawing certain batches of ham.
A number of lines of inquiry are still being investigated and we continue to monitor the situation.
