Rise in measles cases in Harrow/Brent

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

In the last few weeks there’s been an increase in the number of measles cases in Harrow/Brent. Measles spreads easily and can cause serious illnesses, including pneumonia and meningitis.

 

Your child can be protected from this serious infection by receiving two doses of the MMR vaccine. The first dose is given at the age of 12 months and the second dose is given at around 3 years and 4 months, before starting school. Having both doses gives long lasting protection against measles, mumps and rubella. The MMR vaccine It has been protecting children against measles for many years and millions of doses have been administered in the UK.

 

The vaccine has been thoroughly tested and is the safest and most effective way to protect your child against the disease. You can find more information about the MMR vaccination here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/vaccinations/mmr-vaccine/

 

If you are unsure if your child is up to date with all their routine vaccinations, please check their Red Book (personal child health record). If you are still not sure, or if you need to bring your child up to date with their vaccines, contact your GP practice to check and book an appointment. You do not need to be registered with a GP to have these vaccinations.

Routine Immunisations

Dear Parents,

We all want to keep our children safe and protected from serious illness. This is why we are asking you to support a focus on encouraging parents in North West London to ensure that their child is up to date on their routine immunisation course. The summer holidays are a good opportunity to catch up on any outstanding vaccinations before children return to school and start mixing again.

 

Vaccination rates have been falling in London, which was further exacerbated during the pandemic. We need to maintain a high level of vaccine uptake across the population to reduce the risk of outbreaks and the potentially serious impacts on children’s health.

 

Since February we have seen an increase in the number of cases of measles across North West London which may develop into life-threatening illnesses such as meningitis and pneumonia.

 

Booking a vaccine over the summer

 

Any children in London who are not up to date with their routine vaccinations can book one over the summer holidays.

 

Where do I get my child’s vaccine?

 

Your child can get their routine vaccinations at their GP surgery.

 

The NHS has also been contacting the parents of children who are not fully vaccinated to book an appointment at their GP practice or to access them at specialist community clinics in your local area. These will continue over the summer.
