Are you protected against Measles?

If you have not had an MMR vaccination or if you have not had a complete course of the MMR vaccination, please contact the surgery to book your MMR vaccination appointment with a Nurse.

Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can be very unpleasant and sometimes lead to serious complications.

You should contact your GP as soon as possible if you suspect that you or your child may have measles.

It’s best to phone before your visit as your GP surgery may need to make arrangements to reduce the risk of spreading the infection to others.

You should also see your GP if you have been in close contact with someone who has measles and haven’t:

  • Been fully vaccinated with two doses of the MMR vaccine
  • Had the infection before
  • You should do this even if you don’t have any symptoms.
