Measles Outbreaks

There are outbreaks of measles in the UK, Europe and the USA. Measles is very infectious but can be prevented with MMR vaccine.  MMR protects against mumps and rubella too.

NHS Lothian is inviting S1-S6 pupils who have not been vaccinated to clinics this summer term and in the holidays. Look out in the post for your clinic invitation.

Make sure to get vaccinated! Together we can stop the spread of measles! #VaccinesWork #NHS_Lothian
