Help to stay safe with measles and school illnesses guidance.

Families in Nottinghamshire are being offered measles guidance on how to stay safe plus what to do with ill children and school attendance.

The UK Health Security Agency has produced two leaflets for families.

The first, Measles: How to Stay Safe gives details about vaccinations, how to get them, symptoms of the condition and what to do if seeking medical help.

The second, Should I Keep My Child Off School, provides information about a range of health conditions such as chickenpox, colds and head lice, and when you should keep children off school or let them attend.

You can view and download both leaflets on this page.
