Does anyone know if adults are getting measles?
Would it not help to vaccinate adults whose immunity has waned to a) be one less source for the under ones to catch it from and also b) if the dc do get it - to stay healthy to look after them?

Don't know how routine it is by my DH is heading to South Wales (from Up North) this weekend and the GP was more than happy to give him the jab.

Don't know if that's more about preventing the spread nationwide more than anything else.

There aren't resources for it.
Bit hysterical imho.
I expect adults can still get private singles if they wish.

Really! I am going abroad soon....and they have said giving adults the jab offers no help at all to the DC.
