Public Health urge to get Measles jabs

Fri, 26 Apr 2019

The Island's Public Health office is issuing advice on measles following a report this week which revealed that more than half a million children in the UK were not vaccinated against Measles between 2010 and 2017.

The authority is asking anyone who isn't sure of their vaccination status to check with their GP and catch up where two doses haven't been received.

Public Health IOM says it doesn't collect data in the same way as the UK and could not compare to their trends.

However, the data the Isle of Man does have doesn't suggest a decline in vaccine update.
