Measles, Mumps and Rubella




Some of our patients may have recently received a text message about their MMR vaccination status.

Please do not contact us about this, we will be inviting eligible patients over the coming months

Learn more about MMR on the NHS website

Adults who missed out on MMR as a baby and are therefore not immune can have the MMR vaccine on the NHS. It's given to adults as two doses with the second dose given at least a month after the first.

Some adults may not have received full protection due to changes in the MMR vaccine. Anyone born between 1980 and 1990 may not have received a mumps vaccine, and anyone born between 1970 and 1979 may have only had a measles vaccine. 

Even if you have had the MMR before it wont harm you to have a second or even third course of the vaccination.
