Measles Mumps & Rubella Catch up Programme
You will probably have heard that Wales has experienced a surge in the number of children coming down with measles and have instigated a catch up programme for all children throughout England who have not had an MMR injection (or only had one). We have therefore undertaken a search of our patients and identified 70 children who fall into this group.
We will be writing to the parents offering an appointment for their child. This only applies to children who currently fall outside the childhood immunisation programme i.e. over 10 years and under 17 years of age. Children under this age will still be called for as per the schedule.
