A FOURTH case of measles has been confirmed in a student from the Perth Waldorf School in Bibra Lake.

The WA Health Department’s Virus Watch bulletin has confirmed the latest case, with three students contracting the disease from a high school student who developed measles after a holiday in Italy which is in the midst of a measles epidemic.
The department said all four students who developed measles were unvaccinated.

The school, which is believed to have a high rate of unvaccinated students, recently agreed to a Health Department offer to set up an immunisation clinic at the school.
