According to information from France Info, sixteen students from the Sainte-Anne private school in
Saint-Tropez have contracted measles in recent weeks. Three of these children had to be hospitalized. The
Measles is indeed a life-threatening disease.
Alerted, the regional health agency (ARS) investigated to better understand this localized epidemic. At the beginning of March, according to our colleagues from France Info, the ARS sent a letter to parents of students at École Sainte-Anne urging them to vaccinate their children against measles, following the necessary protocol. However, according to the ARS, only one child out of the sixteen patients had been properly vaccinated.
