Your measles questions answered.

THE Chronicle has organised a live web chat with an NHS expert in immunisation.

Senior health protection nurse Julia Waller will be online at 1pm Monday on chroniclelive.co.uk to answer all your questions about measles and the MMR jab.

Teenagers - the ones who might have missed out due to controversy over the triple jab when they were little - are the main concern.

A spokeswoman for Public Health England said: "It's not a problem with take-up now, it's really good that parents are getting their children vaccinated.

"This is about teenagers in the main who didn't get their vaccination when they were babies. Some of them may have had only one jab or none at all and they are the ones who are at risk."

Don't miss your chance to find out more, whatever age your child, at 1pm on Monday. You can also email any questions in advance to lesley.
