Young people are being urged to come forward for MMR as vaccine campaign extended to 16 - 25 year olds

NHS vaccination leads in the North West are calling on 16–25-year-olds to catch up on missed doses of the MMR vaccine amid rising measles cases. 

The NHS will send letters and texts to around 450,000 people aged 16-25 in the region, inviting them to come forward for the vital vaccination at a pharmacy or their GP practice.

Measles doesn’t just affect children, you can catch measles and become very unwell at any age. If you’re unsure if you have had one or both doses of the MMR vaccine, you can check on the NHS app, or contact your GP surgery.

The North West was the first place in the country to start offering the MMR vaccine in some community pharmacies and the offer is now being extended to include all eligible people aged 5 to 25. 

The NHS in the North West is also expanding the number of pharmacies offering the vaccine to make it easier for people to get their MMR in a pharmacy closer to where they live. You can find a list of participating pharmacies here: NHS England — North West » Measles and MMR vaccines

Eligible people will be able to walk in to participating pharmacies, or phone directly to make an appointment.

Important: Carers

Do you provide unpaid care to somebody else? We are here to help.

If your GP (General Practitioner) knows that you are a carer, they can provide you with really useful support, advice and information. For example, they can refer you to local support networks in your area or help you understand what you're entitled to as a carer - such as free flu vaccinations.

It’s important to tell them about your caring responsibilities so that they can offer support.

A more user-friendly NHS App has arrived!
