Measles information

 

You may have noticed the recent BBC news coverage on the increase in measles outbreaks https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/topics/cqee2qz4vk1tMeasles is a highly infectious disease, especially within schools, and can be very serious. 

 

NHS England has launched a national MMR catch-up campaign. Over the next few months, children aged 6 to 11 who are missing one or two doses of the MMR vaccine will be invited to contact their GP practice to check their immunisation history and book an appointment for the MMR vaccination.  Your local Children's Immunisation Team will also be holding local community clinics for 6- to 11-year-olds.
