The measles outbreak that began in Swansea is officially over, but health chiefs have warned people not to become complacent.
The challenge now is to ensure uptake of the MMR vaccine remains high so we don’t find ourselves in the same predicament a few years down the line.
We’re pleased to report that GP practices are still delivering higher numbers of MMR vaccine compared to last year. We hope that this is a sign that people realise these diseases, which we may think are in the past, can still affect us today.
It is everyone’s responsibility to protect themselves and the community if we are to prevent another outbreak in future.
