You may have seen national news reporting that cases of measles are rising in England.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) has shared a blog that provides information for parents about measles, including a description of the symptoms and what parents should do, with regards to going to school, if they are worried that their child may have measles.

Measles is a vaccine-preventable disease, so it is important for everyone, children and adults, to catch up any missed doses of the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine.

To find out if you or your child is up to date with MMR vaccinations, you can check your NHS app, your child’s Personal Child Health Record (red book), or check with your GP.
