There has been a recent rise in measles cases in the UK (May 2023). You can protect your child by making sure that they receive 2 doses of the MMR vaccine (the 1st at 1 year of age, the 2nd at 3 years 4 months of age) – this will almost completely protect them from getting measles. Even if you or your children have missed these vaccines, it’s not too late; contact your GP practice today. For more information about the MMR vaccine, click here.
