Thirty pupils at a Porthmadog school have been diagnosed with Measles after an outbreak in Gwynedd. Eleven new cases have been discovered by doctors at Ysgol Eifionydd. Health Officials say that most of the cases have either had no MMR vaccination or only one dose.
We predicted that the number of cases would rise but it is sad nonetheless that it has risen so sharply. Many of the cases under investigation have not received their scheduled MMR vaccinations. I therefore urge parents who have not arranged immunisation for their children to act immediately.
