Measles is on the rise, with outbreaks in north London over the past couple of months, and UK cases up by more than 250% in 2018.

Measles highly infectious, can cause serious health problems, and even death to vulnerable people.

So if you think you might have it it's vital you stay away from areas where you could come into contact with lots of other people - including schools, shopping centres, care homes, and hospitals. 

Symptoms can include:

  • a runny or blocked nose
  • sneezing and coughing
  • watery or red eyes, which might be sensitive to light
  • swollen eyelids
  • high temperature
  • small white or grey-ish spots in your mouth
  • aches, pains, and feeling generally unwell

If you suspect you've got measles, don't go straight to your GP surgery, A&E or hospital - you could put other patients or people with low immune systems in genuine danger. Stay at home and call your GP or NHS 111 for advice.

The best way to protect yourself, your children and teenagers, and your local community from measles is to make sure you've been vaccinated against the disease. The free MMR vaccine is a safe and effective way to protect against measles, as well as mumps and rubella.

If children and young adults have missed these vaccinations, it's not too late to catch up. Speak to your GP or health visitor.
