GPs urged to remind parents of importance of MMR jab

3rd December 2008

The Health Protection Agency has urged GPs that they must continue to remind parents about the importance of children having both doses of the MMR jab.

The call follows figures that show there have been 1,049 confirmed cases of measles in England and Wales up to the end of October, the highest since new reporting methods were introduced in 1995. The HPA said the first priority for practices should be identifying patients who have not received any doses of MMR and inviting them for vaccination.
