Parents and Friends of Christ Church,
Please be aware that a small number of children, at the school, have been told that they have measles and are off school. We are taking ever action to keep our school
and families safe.
There will be a MMR Vaccination clinic led by the Birmingham Public Health Team on Wednesday ay 1.30pm, at Christ Church School.
If you would like to be vaccinated and if your child needs vaccinating, please come along.
If you are experiencing any Measles related symptoms, DO NOT attend.
Here is a message from our local councillor, Mariam Khan.
She will talk about measles and the importance of the MMR vaccination.
REMEMBER, Measles can spread very easily, and it is important to pay special attention.
Everyone should look out for the signs and symptoms such as:
• high fever
• sore, red, and watery eyes
• aching and feeling unwell
• a rash
If your child has any of these symptoms, please do not send them to school. Instead keep them at home and phone your doctor or ring NHS111 for advice. If you do need to take your child to see the GP or go to a clinic, please ring the doctor or clinic first, so they can make arrangements to prevent passing on measles to other people.
