Passengers on two El Al flights to Tel Aviv this week, one from London, the other from Frankfurt, were notified that one or may passengers on board might have been sick with measles, exposing the other passengers to the disease, the Times of Israel reported on Wednesday.

In the first case, on December 12, a plane departing London at 10:30 p.m. had a sick passenger on board. The second flight departed Frankfurt on Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

“Passengers who are not vaccinated with two doses against measles are invited to immediately turn to their local healthcare provider to inquire whether they need a vaccine against the measles,” the Israeli health ministry said.
