Don't Let Your Child Catch It

Due to recent outbreaks of measles elsewhere in the UK, The UK Health Security Agency has advised that it is likely that we will see measles cases in Greater Manchester. Measles is highly infectious and can cause serious health consequences. The MMR vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect from measles, mumps and rubella. Please check that your child has had their MMR vaccines, and if unsure speak to their GP. More information can be found at:
