Local pop-up MMR vaccination clinics

Posted by: Umbrella Medical - Posted on:

Due to an increase in measles cases across the West Midlands, pop-up vaccination clinics have been set up in Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall & Wolverhampton for children aged 12-16 years to get their measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine.

Measles can spread quickly among communities, particularly schools, if children have not had two doses of the MMR vaccine.

The pop-up clinics will be staffed by trained healthcare professionals from the NHS and Vaccination UK. Book to attend with your child at your nearest clinic.

The next set of clinics are:

  • Saturday 27 January, 9am-1.30pm, Wood Lane Community Centre, Wood Lane, West Bromwich, B709PT. To book an appointment call 0121 592 1110.

Non-urgent advice: If you think you or your child may have measles

Stay at home and phone your GP or NHS 111 for advice.
Stay away from GP surgeries and A&E departments

Non-urgent advice: Two doses of the MMR vaccine gives your child lifelong protection from measles.

Check if your child is up to date with their vaccinations at the clinics, in their Red Book (personal child health record), the NHS app, or contact your GP practice.
