There is currently a large ongoing outbreak of measles in Europe and an increase in cases throughout England. This means that unimmunised individuals will be at a real increased risk of contracting the infection and getting ill with Measles.
Please find attached a letter from Public Health England to all Childcare Settings to raise awareness of measles and to encourage parents to get their children vaccinated with the MMR vaccine. Also attached are two posters which can be used to raise awareness of measles in your setting. (“Call ahead poster” and “Don’t let your child catch” it poster)
Please circulate the attached letter amongst your parents and display the posters.
