All healthcare workers (including receptionists and staff attending clinical areas) should have satisfactory evidence of protection against measles to protect both themselves and patients.
Satisfactory evidence of protection includes documentation of having received two or more doses of a measles containing vaccine and/or a positive measles IgG antibody test.
Health care workers that are not immune/unvaccinated pose a serious infection risk to vulnerable patients in whom measles infection can have life-threatening consequences.
Occupational Health and Wellbeing Service should have up to date records from when you started in role. The team are currently undertaking a measles look back exercise, if you are contacted by Occupational Health for your measles status or offered an appointment to attend, please ensure you attend any booked appointments.
