Click here to view: Measles Letter
Please read the attached letter that has been sent to all school Principals by the Ministry of Health with information about Measles.
We have had no reported cases of Measles at Glenfield College but do ask all parents to be vigilant. Our staff at the college have also been informed and given information on what to do should a child display any of the symptoms. The attached letter has more detailed information including symptoms.
The best protection against measles is the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine which is free for all children. MMR vaccinations are scheduled at 15 months and 4 years.
MMR vaccination is also free for susceptible adults born after 1 January 1969 who have not received two doses of a measles containing vaccine. If in any doubt please see your family GP.
As stated earlier, we have had no reported cases at Glenfield College but will notify you if this position changes.
