Parents are being urged to get children vaccinated against measles after a number of new cases in Wirral by Public Health England.
Wirral Council said there have been five confirmed cases and six probable cases in recent weeks all involving children and young adults who have not had the MMR vaccine.
Councillor Chris Jones, cabinet member for adult care and health, said it was a "safe and effective way" of protecting against measles and mumps and rubella.
“The vaccine is quick, free and available from your GP," he said.
"It only takes a few minutes to check but it could be potentially life-saving, for your own family and those around you."
