An outbreak of measles in Newport and Torfaen has been declared over, although people are being warned of potential further cases in Wales.
The outbreak was declared in May and led to 17 people being confirmed with measles, but there have been no new cases since mid-August.
Public Health Wales is warning parents and young people there continues to be a risk of measles to people who are not fully vaccinated with two doses of MMR.
An investigation into the outbreak is continuing after the cases were found to have a direct link to Europe, which still has the potential to cause further cases in Wales.
Dr Rhianwen Stiff, Consultant in Communicable Disease Control for Public Health Wales, said:
Public Health Wales said about one in five children with measles can experience serious complications such as ear infections, pneumonia or meningitis. One in 10 children with measles ends up in hospital and in rare cases it can be fatal.
