Measles cases are increasing in England. The virus spreads easily, so it’s important your child is fully vaccinated.

The MMR vaccine is a safe and effective combined vaccine, which protects against three serious illnesses:

  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Rubella (german measles)

Getting vaccinated is important as these conditions can lead to serious health problems and can spread easily between unvaccinated people.

Two doses of the MMR vaccine provide the best protection.

What should I do?

Step 1: Check whether your child has had all of the vaccines they should have had.

You can look in the ‘immunisation’ section in your child’s red book (Personal Child Health Record) to see if they have received their MMR vaccination.

If you’re still unsure, check their records with their GP or email
the vaccination clinic

Step 2: If your child is missing any vaccination, book an appointment to get them up to date.

This can be done at a vaccination clinic or the GP If you would like to book a place on a clinic, please call 0300 555 5055 option 3 to book appointments for any outstanding vaccinations.

Important - Please do not attend a clinic without booking in advance.
