MMR Vaccines

The MMR vaccine is a safe and effective combined vaccine, it protects against 3 serious illnesses (Measles, Mumps and Rubella).

These highly infectious conditions can easily spread between unvaccinated people.

Getting vaccinated is important, as these conditions can also lead to serious problems including Meningitis, hearing loss and problems during pregnancy.

You need two doses of MMR vaccine to protect you, it's never too late to have your MMR!

Search for 'MMR vaccine' on the NHS website to read further information.
