First Fever, Then Rash: The Symptoms Of Measles Parents Need To Know

Measles might sound like an illness from the past, but it’s very much still around – yet more and more children are not being vaccinated for it globally.

In 2021, a record high of nearly 40 million children missed a measles vaccine dose, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has warned.

In the UK, one in 10 children under the age of five are not fully protected from measles and are at risk of catching it.

The global health body has warned the “situation is grave” as measles is one of the most contagious human viruses, but is almost entirely preventable through vaccination.

More than 140,000 people worldwide died from measles in 2018 – and most of these were children under the age of five.

Here’s what parents need to know about it.
