Measles: Not too late to get MMR A measles outbreak in Wales is a reminder of the importance of MMR vaccination. It's never too late to get your children (or yourself) vaccinated against this dangerous illness. There have been over 600 confirmed cases of measles in Swansea and the outbreak shows no sign of slowing down. Measles isn't trivial. It's a very infectious, nasty illness which, in rare cases, can be fatal. About one in five c h i l d r e n w i t h m e a s l e s experiences complications such as ear infections, diarrhoea and
v o m i t i n g , p n e u m o n i a , meningitis, and eye disorders. One in 10 children with measles ends up in hospital. There is no treatment for measles. Vaccination is the only way of preventing it. Children up to the age of 18 and adults without immunity should have a catch‐up MMR vaccination. Simply call your local GP practice and make an appointment for an MMR jab. It involves two doses which can be given just a month apart to protect as quickly as possible.
