Think Measles!

The number of confirmed cases of measles in the UK has increased in young people.

Measles is a highly contagious infection that spreads very easily and can lead to serious problems.

The most effective method of protection against Measles is the MMR vaccine.

Common symptoms of measles include a high fever, sore and watery eyes, coughing, fatigue, and a red-brown rash.

If you think that you may be experiencing symptoms, it is important that you stay at home and contact your GP or NHS 111 for advice. To prevent further spread of the infection, please avoid GP surgeries and A&E departments. Stay home from nursery, school, or work for at least four days after the rash appears.

It’s not too late to get vaccinated.
