The Sunshine Coast Health Service has defended its decision to name a possible place of contact for a measles infection.

Its been revealed a person with the illness visited the Blended Health Bar on Hastings Street on March 4, between 10 and 11am, and also wondered down other parts of that street.

Public health physician Margaret Young says they need to identify and publicly reveal the premise to help people narrow down if they're at risk.

"Let's go back to the scenario of the young Mum with a 10-month-old who is too young to be vaccinated," Margaret says.

"Hastings Street is a big street, it can be the difference between her stressing about either being there between 10 and 11am, or knowing they weren't there, for example, they were in a book store or trying on dresses."
