Parents in Kent have been urged to vaccinate their children and be vigilant about the symptoms of measles, after two people contracted the virus.

Public Health England (PHE) wrote to parents and teachers following two confirmed cases in Cuxton.

Dr Claire Winslade, a consultant with PHE, said: “Measles is not a harmless childhood illness as many think – it is extremely infectious, can strike anyone and sadly in some instances can have very serious long term and life changing consequences.

“The best form of protection against measles is the MMR vaccination. It is important that anyone who hasn’t already had two doses of the MMR vaccine contacts their GP surgery for an appointment to get vaccinated."

Symptoms of measles can include cold-like symptoms, sore red eyes, a high temperature and a red-brown blotchy rash.
