EXPIRED Measles outbreak information for schools

Public Health England are asking for schools help in raising awareness of measles and encouraging parents and carers to get their children vaccinated with the MMR vaccine. There is currently an increase in measles cases across England with outbreaks occurring in the south west. Unimmunised individuals will be at a real increased risk of contracting the infection and getting ill with measles. The letter via the link below to Headteachers gives the background, and posters have been developed to raise awareness. PHE have also developed a letter to parents and carers.

 

 

"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
