Measles Swansea: 33,000 children still need MMR jab

Over 60,000 measles vaccinations have now been given which will help to reduce the length and severity of the outbreak in Swansea and Powys, says Public Health Wales.

However, another 33,000 youngsters between 10 and 18 have still not had the jab, say officials.

The number of cases in the outbreak has now reached 1,136 since November 2012, up 10 cases in the last few days.

There were only 19 measles cases in Wales in the whole of 2011.
