Measles! Posted on 12 Dec 2019

Don't let measles ruin your fun. The mmr vaccine might not be top of your list for getting festival ready this summer but it is very important.

Young people aged 18-24 are particularly at risk from disease as they often come into contact with many new people in confined environments such as pubs and clubs, festivals and university halls. Students starting  university for the first time are particularly at risk if unvaccinated. There have been outbreaks of measles and mumps in halls of residence. Young people will need to of had 2 doses of the MMR to protect them against measles, they also need their MenACWY Vaccine and a good understanding of the signs and symptoms of Meningitis and septicaemia.
