Young adults in Sandwell and West Birmingham planning to attend summer festivals are being urged to make sure they’re up to date with their measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) jabs. The plea has been issued by NHS Sandwell and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) as measles and mumps cases across England continue to rise.
Mass gathering events like festivals can be hot spots for measles and mumps as they present the perfect opportunity for the infection to spread. There has recently been an increase in measles and mumps cases across England, particularly in young people and children. There are also several large measles outbreaks across Europe.
