MMR Vaccine

The NHS has recently sent out texts to young people or their parents / carers regarding the MMR vaccine. The texts say that the patient may not have had one or both MMR vaccines (Measles Mumps and Rubella). We have received many phone calls about this, and on checking the records we have found that the texts have been incorrectly targeted, and all records we have checked have shown that the full course has been received.

Please help us by checking the Red Book or the NHS App before contacting us – we have many patients who potentially have received texts and it has already been problematic for our phone lines!

If the Red Book or the NHS App do not show that two doses of the MMR have been received (usually at 13 months and 3 years 4 months), please let us know so we can look into this further and check if your child needs the vaccine or if they have been fully vaccinated.

If the Red Book / NHS App do show both vaccines, there is no need to contact us.

We really appreciate your support with this!
