Parents and guardians of children aged 10-16 years (born 1997-2003) who have not received any MMR vaccination and parents and guardians of those who have only received one MMR, will shortly be receiving a letter inviting them to make an appointment for their child/children to receive the MMR vaccination. (The appointments will be sent out towards the end of June when the exam season will be nearly over.)
If you would prefer to make an appointment without waiting for the letter, then please call the surgery on 01258 453171 mentioning that you are ringing to make an appointment for the MMR immunisation. The receptionist will check your child's medical record if necessary.
If you receive a letter and your child has already had 2 (a first and booster) MMR immunisations, please contact the surgery so that we may update the medical records.
