Measles Awareness

Published: 05 February 2024

Cases of measles are rising across England, including among children.  The infection spreads very easily and for some people can cause serious problems.  Cases have been reported in the south west and it is anticipated that before long it will arrive in Cornwall.  The best protection against measles for children and adults is to get both cases of the MMR vaccine.  You are being urged to check your own and your family's vaccination status.
