(Measles, Mumps and Rubella)
Are you eligible?
This vaccination can be offered to those aged 15 – 47 years of age who have previously NOT received two doses of the MMR Vaccine
Why do I need the MMR?
The MMR vaccine will help protect you from Measles, Mumps and Rubella. All three diseases can be very serious. Measles and mumps can make adults very ill and measles can cause serious problems for women who are pregnant and people who have weakened immune system (and can’t fight infection well). Catching rubella during pregnancy can be very serious for your unborn baby, causing a condition called congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).
By getting immunised you will not only be protecting yourself but also reduce the risk of passing infections to others.
It’s never too late to have your MMR Vaccination.
Make an appointment with Practice Nurse if unsure of your MMR Status
