Measles Outbreak

The number of young people catching measles has risen. It’s never too late to be vaccinated. You need two doses of MMR one month apart to be fully protected against measles, mumps and rubella.

Please see below some symptoms of measles.

Symptoms such as:

  • high fever
  • rash – sometimes
  • starting around the ears
  • sore red eyes
  • cough
  • aching and feeling unwell

Remember, if it could be measles – they need to be in an area where they cannot pass the infection to vulnerable patients such as the immunocompromised and pregnant women.
