MMR Vaccinations


The rise in the incidence of measles and mumps is directly linked to the fall-off in Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination rates.  In order to address this worrying situation, NHS England and NHS Improvement have announced a school based MMR catch up programme.   This will commence from March 2020 for children in school years 8, 9 and 10 who are deemed eligible by missing one or both doses of MMR.
