Measles and Importance of Vaccination

Measles is a nasty viral decease that can cause severe illness, hospitalisation and in extreme cases death – it is almost entirely preventable if people have two Measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccines in their life time.

Currently there are approximately 30,000 residents in Cornwall aged between 2 years old and 25 years old who are unvaccinated and therefore will all be susceptible to catching and spreading measles.

Measles is almost entirely Preventable, please get vaccinated – its never too late, just contact your GP surgery and book an appointment.
