The MMR vaccination protects you against measles.  Full immunisation requires two MMR vaccinations which are usually given at 1 year and a booster at 3 years.

Our additional measles clinics have now finished, but you can book a measles vaccination appointment by contacting reception.

If you/your child is likely to need other vaccinations in addition to the MMR vaccination then please book a normal 15 minute child imms appointment.  These are usually held on Tuesday mornings.

The nurse will advise you if a second appointment for a booster vaccination is required.

Further information regarding measles and the MMR vaccination can be found on the NHS website:
