Measles cases are increasing in London and the West Midlands and there are concerns this will spread across the country.
It is important to ensure as many people as possible are fully vaccinated against MMR:
- The practice is currently contacting parents whose children aged 1-5 years old have not been vaccinated with MMR
- Nationally, letters and texts are being sent to patients who are not fully vaccinated with MMR aged 6-25 years. Please contact the Practice for vaccination or a clinical discussion.
