Measles

Measles is in the news again with several serious outbreaks in England and Wales and the number of children catching it is rising. Measles can be a very serious disease leading to ear and chest infections, fits, diarrhoea and damage to the brain. Measles can kill! Your child is at risk if they haven't been immunised with the MMR vaccine. Two doses of the vaccine are needed to get the best protection. If your child is due to have had the two doses but not yet had them, no matter what age they are you should contact your GP surgery to get them vaccinated as soon as possible.
