  • Public Health - Cases of Measles in Hillingdon

    Published 05/05/23

    The local Public Health team has informed us that there has been a recent increase in the number of cases of Measles in Hillingdon. The cases all children aged 1 to 16, and all are unvaccinated.

    The current MMR vaccination uptake in Hillingdon is less than 75%, which means that 1 in every 4 children in the borough has not had the two doses of MMR vaccination that provides safe, effective protection against measles. There is variation in uptake across areas of the borough, which means that is some areas a greater number of children have not been vaccinated. This increases the risk of measles transmission in schools.

    Measles is a highly infectious respiratory virus that transmits through respiratory droplets from an infected person when they cough and sneeze which is then inhaled by another person. If that person is not fully vaccinated the risk of getting measles is high.

    The signs and symptoms of measles to be aware of are:

    • Cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, sneezing, and a cough
    • Sore red eyes that may be sensitive to light
    • A high temperature (fever), which may reach around 40°C
    • Small greyish-white spots on the inside of the cheeks
    • A few days later, a red-brown blotchy rash will appear, usually starting on the head or upper neck, before spreading outwards to the rest of the body.

    It is important that if a child is suspected of having measles, they do not attend school. They must telephone their GP or NHS 111. Measles is a notifiable disease which means all cases must be followed up, and contacts identified and given advice on what action they need to take.

    For more information contact your GP or an visit the NHS information website:
