Lucky measles break for Irish fans

Ireland fans have another reason to be thankful that Giovanni Trapattoni's men will be based in Poland for Euro 2012.

Supporters planning on travelling to the Ukraine this summer have been advised to get vaccinated against the measles. To add to the headaches over transport logistics and rip-off accommodation costs, Ukraine's health ministry has now revealed the country is experiencing a measles outbreak.

In addition to measles, foreigners are advised to be immunised for rubella, tuberculosis and other diseases.
