We are ONLY booking PRIORITY people: UPDATED 19.3.19 (pm)
1-49 years who have NEVER been vaccinated for measles
& any caregivers, close family members of someone who is immuno-compromised e.g undergoing Chemo (please talk to a nurse about this)
& any nurses, doctors or midwives
& any children 4-5 years who have only had 1 MMR vaccination
& and parents and siblings (who have only had 1 MMR vaccination) of a child under 1 year
You must NOT be pregnant or planning a pregnancy to receive this vaccine.
If you are in this priority above, you can phone and book an appointment. Other groups need to please wait and watch the website- we will not book you at this stage, not even in advance.
We have extra nurses and have set up extra clinics to meet demand. We will still be limited by available room space, and the continued availability of the vaccines/delivery delays.
*People born before 1969 are considered to be low risk and do not require vaccination. If you are born before 1969 you are not funded for this vaccine and therefore cannot receive this vaccine at all.
One dose of MMR protects 95% of people from developing measles. The reason we give a second dose is to capture the 5% who need this second vaccine to develop immunity. The majority of people who have had one dose of MMR in the past and people who have had a single measles vaccine have a good level of protection.
IF YOU OR FAMILY SUSPECT YOU MAY HAVE MEASLES, PLEASE DO NOT COME IN. CALL THE SURGERY FOR ADVICE. We have processes in place that we will need to follow.
