Advice to check on vaccinations 

Manx students heading to university next month are being urged to check they are protected against measles.

It's after the World Health Organization (WHO) confirmed a major outbreak of the disease.

Measles is thought to be at a record high in Europe, with more than 41,000 cases recorded in the first half of this year.

People traveling from across the British Isles to the continent are being warned.

The Island's Public Health Directorate is concerned some young people may not have received the MMR jab during childhood.

Anyone leaving the Island to study, go on holiday or visit a music festival is being urged to check they are up to date with vaccinations - including those whose parents opted them out.
