It’s not too late to protect your child against Measles, Mumps and Rubella. NHS Lothian is running a catch-up campaign for young people aged 10 to 17 years who have not received two doses of MMR vaccine. Some young people missed out on the MMR vaccination when they were younger. Two doses of the vaccine are required to ensure protection.
Information has been sent to parents and guardians of children who are 10 to 17 years old whose health records show they may not have completed the full course of MMR vaccination.
NHS Lothian is encouraging parents and guardians of these children to contact their General Practice to arrange MMR vaccination for their child.
