MMR catch-up Vaccination
There is no upper age limit for MMR vaccine and adults who are not protected should also be caught up. Overdue/never vaccinated with MMR - no appointment needed, drop in and we will protect you.
Measles outbreaks have been declared in Leeds, Liverpool, Birmingham, Manchester and Surrey that are linked to large outbreaks in Europe, with Romania, Italy and Germany being the worst affected countries. All UK cases have been reported in children and adults who have not received two doses of the MMR vaccine.
Measles is highly infectious and can lead to serious complications, particularly in immuno-suppressed individuals and young infants. It is also more severe in pregnancy, and increases the risk of miscarriage, stillbirth or preterm delivery.
Under-immunised communities, such as recent migrants and travellers, are at risk of catching measles in the UK. This risk is increased in those that travel to the affected countries, currently Romania, Italy and Germany.
