Mumps, Measles and Rubella (MMR) vaccine

A vaccination campaign aimed at curbing the growing threat of measles has been announced by the Public Health Agency (PHA).

From 6th February, first and second doses of the Mumps, Measles and Rubella (MMR) vaccine will be offered to anyone aged between 12 months and 25 years who missed getting the vaccines first time around. The MMR catch-up campaign will run until 31 March 2024. Those who have never received any doses of MMR vaccine should book early to allow one month between dose one and dose two before the end of March.

After a worrying drop in uptake in recent years and a growing number of measles cases in the UK and Europe, the PHA is urging parents to get their children vaccinated.

Children between 12 months and 5 years of age can get the vaccine through their GP practice and those aged 6 years to 25 years of age can attend our Trust vaccination clinic – details below:
