Measles is more than just a rash and can lead to serious complications including meningitis and blindness, particularly in babies and young children. In fact, 1 in 5 children with measles need hospital treatment.
Cases are on the rise and the disease is highly infectious.
The best way to protect your children from this serious and preventable disease is to keep their vaccinations up to date. The Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccine is safe and has been used since the early 1980s.
