NATIONAL MMR CATCH-UP CAMPAIGN - CHILDREN & ADULTS
Following a previous increase in cases of Measles and related infections, the NHS are extending their Campaign to ensure that our population is fully vaccinated against Measles, Mumps & Rubella.
The 1st MMR vaccine is offered to babies at 12 months with a 2nd vaccination around 3yrs & 4 months.
Some children who have only had one dose may not be fully vaccinated against Measles, Mumps or Rubella.
This Campaign encourages parents to ensure that their children are fully vaccinated.
If any vaccines have been missed, children can receive a catch-up vaccination at their GP surgery.
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.
There is no upper age limit to this Campaign and so any CHILD or ADULT who has not had 2 doses of the MMR vaccination is eligible to receive a catch-up vaccine.
** If you have not received the full MMR vaccination and would like to receive the catch-up, please contact us and book in.

NHS Meningococcal ACWY Vaccination - 2017 School Leaver Cohort
There has been high media intereset in the very sad death of Lauren Sandell. Lauren was in the vaccine eligible cohort that left school last year and was at University for less than 2 weeks before falling ill with MenW disease. She had not been immunised before leaving for University and sadly her case highlights the need to vaccinate this age group with the MenACWY before they begin higher education. All patients at this practice within this age group will be sent a letter to invite them to have the vaccination here at the surgery.
Please take advantage of this vaccination whilst eligible ..... It could save your life!!!
