Measles Outbreak and MMR Vaccination Plans
There has been an increase in the number of measles cases reported nationally this year and an outbreak occurred recently in Leeds during 2017/18, involving 34 confirmed cases. Currently, there is also an ongoing outbreak in Bradford. In recent days, we have also seen spread to Harrogate, Hebden Bridge, Barnsley and Leeds. We may well expect to see further cases across the region. Despite good levels of MMR vaccination across the region some sections of the population remain vulnerable including recent new entrants who may not be up to date with MMR including those from European countries where there are ongoing outbreaks.
Measles is one of the most highly infectious communicable diseases. Spending 15 minutes or more in direct contact with someone infected with measles is considered a significant exposure. Immunocompromised patients, pregnant women and unvaccinated infants are at increased risk of severe disease.
