Wales measles: MMR jab clinics held in schools

About 2,000 pupils could be given the MMR jab in schools this week to try to stop the spread of the measles epidemic centred on Swansea.

Four city comprehensives and one in Neath Port Talbot will host vaccination sessions for unprotected 11-18-year-olds, who health experts say have a low take-up of the jab.

Letters are going to parents ahead of the sessions, which start on Wednesday.

Bishop Gore Comprehensive School is taking part and head teacher Ryan Davies spoke to Hywel Griffith.
