Public Health Wales: 'More children need measles jab'

A review into Wales' biggest measles outbreak has called on authorities to strive to eradicate the infection.

The Public Health Wales review gives recommendations to the NHS, local authorities and the Welsh Government on future protocols when dealing with a measles epidemic.

Parents are still being urged to get their children vaccinated after further cases were found in Swansea last month.

Over 1,202 people have contracted measles since November last year.

Public Health Wales officials are concerned this number could grow if children don't receive both doses of the MMR vaccine.
