Measles is on the rise in London
The NHS has launched a campaign urging parents and carers to book their children in for their missed measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. This follows the announcement of a national incident by the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) as cases of measles continue to rise across the country.
Make sure your child is up to date with their MMR vaccinations – check your child’s red book, and contact the practice to catch up on any 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.
This is the best way to protect your child.
