The Department of Health has reassured parents and guardians that the current measles shot being dispensed at schools as part of the measles vaccination campaign is safe.

The department was responding to concerns raised by some parents that the vaccines might be dangerous, or that the same needle might be used more than once.

The National Institute for Communicable Diseases has meanwhile confirmed that more than a thousand-100 cases have been identified, with most reported in Gauteng.

At least four patients have died.
