Southampton's Public Health Director has welcomed the move to offer measles vaccinations to ten to sixteen year olds.
This is an excellent opportunity for parents to check to see if their children have had two doses of MMR. “Parents do not need to panic. GPs are getting extra stocks of vaccine to cope with the extra demand and we are expecting their practices to be able to contact those who require vaccination and offer them an appointment. This may vary from practice to practice. Although measles is in the public eye at the moment, MMR is a safe and effective vaccine against three common illnesses that are easily preventable.”
