HSE Measles Alert

February 23, 2024

Dear Parent,


The HSE have asked us to raise this concern with all parents in the interest of public health.


In recent months there has been a rise in cases of measles in parts of the UK and

Europe. The HSE is writing to ask for our support in raising awareness among parents,

guardians and school staff about:

  • Watching out for symptoms of measles
  • The importance of the MMR vaccine in protecting children and young people.

Kind regards,


Keith O’Rahilly
