Vaccination reminder

It follows a rise in cases of Measles.

Parents and carers in Nottinghamshire are being reminded to check that their child is up to date with their vaccinations.
Public Health England has issued the call following a rise in cases of Measles across the country and is especially appealing to parents whose children will be starting a new school next term.
It has produced some handy postcard information leaflets that can be downloaded and shared.
A Public Health England spokesperson said: “Your child will be learning and playing with more children when they start their new school and could be at risk of catching preventable diseases if they haven’t had all their childhood jabs.
“If you are not sure if your child has had all their routine vaccinations, check their personal health record (Red Book) or contact the GP surgery.
“To get the best protection for your child, they need to have had two doses of MMR vaccine.”
