Did you know that London is at risk of a measles epidemic as thousands of children and adults are not protected?

Measles is a serious infection and can lead to potentially life-threatening complications.

It is five times more infectious than COVID-19 and can affect people at any age. 

The MMR Vaccine is safe and highly effective. Check that you have been vaccinated – especially if you were born between 1989 and 2007. 

There is a moving letter that Roald Dahl wrote in 1986, twenty four years after his daughter Olivia died from measles. You can find it here.
