Has your child had their MMR Vaccinations?

As a school we aim to promote vaccinations to help prevent any outbreaks in school. Please see the guidance below on the MMR Vaccination.

What is the MMR Vaccination for?

MMR is a safe vaccine that is given to children before they start school. It helps protect against three separate illnesses - Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German Measles). Measles, Mumps and Rubella are common highly infectious conditions that can cause serious implications.

How can my child get the Vaccination?

MMR Vaccine is given on the NHS as a single injection to babies as part of their routine vaccinations, usually within a month of their first birthday.

They will then have their second injection of the vaccine before starting school, usually between the ages of three and five. Please contact your GP if you are unsure as to if your child has had the Vaccination or for further information.

  • The nasal spray helps protect against flu, has been given to millions of children worldwide and has an excellent safety record.
  • The nasal spray is painless and easy to have.
  • Flu can be really serious, especially for children with medical conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
  • If your child gets flu you may have to take time off to look after them.
  • Protecting your child can stop flu spreading to other children and the family, especially babies and grandparents, who may be at higher risk from flu.
