MMR (Measles Mumps & Rubella)
The number of children vaccinated with MMR has fallen! It is never too late to get vaccinated against measles!
Around one in every 10 children who get measles is admitted to hospital. In rare cases, people can die from measles. Measles in pregnant women can also be very
serious and threaten the pregnancy.
The only way to prevent measles outbreaks is to make sure there is good uptake of the MMR vaccine across all ages.
