Two vaccinations are needed to fully protect you against Measles, mumps and Rubella.

Measles is a highly contagious disease which is spread by coughs and sneezes.

It normally clears up after seven to 10 days. However, it can lead to serious problems if it infects other parts of the body, such as the lungs or brain.

Complications can include pneumonia, meningitis, blindness, and seizures.

Babies and young children, pregnant women and those with a weakened immune system are more at risk.

Measles can be fatal.

The more people that are vaccinated, the harder it is to catch it.

If you are not fully vaccinated, we strongly recommend you book your immunisation at the earliest opportunity by calling us on 02392 009191.

You can also check which immunisations you have received via the NHS App.
