Measles cases are on the rise in England and across Europe. Make sure you and your family are protected
against becoming seriously unwell with measles by checking you are up to date with the MMR vaccine.

Across England, on average one in ten children are not up to date with their MMR vaccinations, with some
areas of the country as low as two in five, putting thousands of children at risk of catching measles and the
disease spreading in unvaccinated communities.

Just two doses of the MMR vaccine gives you and your family lifelong protection against catching measles.
The first vaccine is given at age one year an the second at age 3 years and 4 months old. If you’ve missed
any doses it’s not too late to catch up. Contact you’re GP Practice today to book an appointment to get up to
date.

 

If you are unsure if you or your child are up to date check your child’s red book or GP records and make an
appointment to catch up any missed doses.
