🔴 The best protection is 2 doses of the safe, effective MMR vaccine at 1 year and 3 years 4 months

🔴 If your child has not had two doses, please contact us ASAP

🔴 Know the symptoms, keep people with symptoms away from others

🔴 Please do not walk into the surgery if measles are suspected – contact us online as usual

Symptoms include: high fever, sore red, watery eyes, coughing, aching and feeling generally unwell, a blotchy red brown rash, which usually appears after the first symptoms

You may receive a text from NHS England regarding the MMR vaccine – if your child is fully vaccinated (two doses) then there is no futher action needed. We are happy to confirm patients’ vaccination status

There is currently no plan to bring the 1 year vaccination forward
