As cases of Measles are on the rise in the UK, it’s very important to catch up on any missed vaccines.
You can still ask the surgery for the MMR vaccine if your child has missed either of these 2 doses.
Anyone who has not had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine should ask their GP surgery for a vaccination appointment.
It’s important to check you have had both doses if you:
are about to start college or university
are going to travel abroad
are planning a pregnancy
are a frontline health or social care worker
were born between 1970 and 1979, as you may have only been vaccinated against measles
were born between 1980 and 1990, as you may not be protected against mumps.
