There have been 440 confirmed measles cases in England this year. The outbreaks are reported to be mainly associated with travel to and from Europe, where there are large ongoing measles outbreaks. Dr Mary Ramsay, Head of Immunisation at PHE, said "The measles outbreaks we are currently seeing in England are linked to ongoing large outbreaks in Europe. The majority of cases we are seeing are in teenagers and young adults who missed out on their MMR vaccine when they were children."
