Measles Outbreak

Posted on:

There is currently a Measles outbreak in the U.K. Measles is an infection that spreads very easily and can cause serious problems. The MMR vaccine is the best way to prevent Measles, Mumps and Rubella.

We will be inviting patients that have an incomplete MMR vaccine course and offering them the MMR vaccination. Eligible patients will be invited via a text message with a link to book in directly. Those without a mobile phone will receive letters.  More information regarding Measles mumps and rubella and the MMR vaccination can be found here – MMR Vaccine (Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine) | Vaccine Knowledge Project (
