Vaccination appeal after measles outbreak

8th July 2009

Parents have been urged to have their children vaccinated as soon as possible after the worst outbreak of measles in the north east for 20 years.

So far this year there have been 99 reported cases, plus another 100 suspected - more than the total number of cases in the region in the whole of last year. It has led NHS North of Tyne, on behalf of Newcastle primary care trust, North Tyneside PCT and Northumberland care trust, to launch a public awareness campaign.
