Measles outbreak

Dear Patients and Practice colleague,

 

Camden Public Health team has been notified of a measles outbreak in a language-specific Saturday school in NW5. The outbreak comprises three children who are all unvaccinated, with symptoms onset on 10 July. 

 NCL health protection team are undertaking contact tracing and are looking to confirm the primary school and nursery the children attend.

 As part of a summer campaign, Camden Public Health has written to parents – via schools – about the importance of ensuring children are up-to-date with their immunisations.

 

Thanks

Camden Primary Care Team
