Are you under 25 years of age?
Are you protected?
Young people under 25 years of age may be at risk if they have not had 2 MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) jabs
There is currently a large outbreak of measles in Wales and you may be at risk of serious illness if you are not protected
A simple, safe and FREE jab will help to protect you
If you have not been vaccinated or you are unsure, visit the MMR clinics at Chepstow or Royal Gwent hospitals, this Saturday 18th May 11am - 3pm. It is important to have you MMR jab as soon as possible.
Update from Public Health Wales : 10th May 2013
Dr Marion Lyons, Director of Health Protection for Public Health Wales, said:
“The 84 cases in Gwent are a huge concern to us and with 10,000 children there still in need of vaccination, we are warning young people and parents not to be complacent just because they don’t live in the outbreak area.
“There is no way of knowing where the next outbreak could strike so the message is simple – wherever you live in Wales, if you are a young person who hasn’t received two doses of MMR or the parent of a child who hasn’t, please arrange vaccination urgently.
“It is encouraging to see so many parents bringing their children for vaccination now who refused the vaccine in the past, and we must keep this up if we are going to see an end to the current outbreak and have the best chance of preventing more outbreaks in the future.”
