The number of children catching measles is rising so it’s important your child is fully protected
Children need to have 2 doses of the MMR vaccine to be fully protected. If your child hasn’t had both doses they could be at risk of catching measles.
Measles is a very infectious disease. It spreads easily and quickly – just a cough or sneeze can spread the measles virus to other people.
1 in 10 children with measles will need hospital treatment because they might develop serious complications.
The MMR vaccination is a safe way to protect your child. You will also be protecting them against mumps and rubella, which can also be serious illnesses.
