MEASLES

PREVENTION

Measles is a highly contagious viral infection most commonly found in children. It is spread by coughing or sneezing, close personal contact, or direct contact with nasal or throat secretions. Although measles had become relatively rare since the introduction of measles immunisation, currently it has become more prevalent due to a failure of uptake of MMR vaccination.

 

If you would prefer for your child to receive single dose vaccinations (currently unavailable on the NHS), you can arrange privately to have them separately, and to suit your child’s individual needs.

 

It is common to give the Rubella vaccine combined with the second measles vaccine to ensure recommended levels of protection.
