Cases of Measles are increasing in the UK. Measles can be a very serious disease and cause severe, even life threatening complications. Make sure your child is protected – it is never too late to catch up!

2 doses of the MMR vaccine are needed for 95% protection against Measles. If you are unsure of your child’s vaccination status you can check via the following avenues:

  • Immunisation details are available in your child’s Red Book
  • Call 01874 442 510 (Mon-Fri 11am-4pm)

If your child is not fully vaccinated, and you haven’t already made an appointment with your GP for MMR vaccination you can access one of our drop-in sessions at our vaccination centres.
