MMR Vaccine Text




The NHS has recently sent out texts and letters to young people or their parents / carers regarding the MMR vaccine stating that the patient may not have received one or both MMR vaccines (Measles Mumps and Rubella).

The practice has received many phone calls about this, and on checking the patient’s records it has been found that the texts have been incorrectly targeted, and all records that have been 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.

  • 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 contact the practice and we will check the patient records.
  • If the Red Book / NHS App do show both vaccines, there is no need to contact us.

We appreciate your support with this.
