Ensure your childs vaccines are up to date

Make sure your child is up to date with their MMR vaccinations – check your child’s red book, and make an appointment by contacting the nurse at your GP practice to catch up on missed doses.

  • Two doses of the MMR vaccine can stop your child becoming seriously unwell with measles– two doses of the safe and effective vaccine are needed for maximum life-long protection, with the first dose given around the child’s first birthday, and the second dose given at around three years and four months old.
  • Measles is not just a childhood disease and can be serious at any age– anyone can catch up at any age on any missed doses and it’s never too late to protect yourself.
