MMR Vaccine and Update Summer Term

Bolton NHS Foundation Trust has a dedicated School Aged Immunisation Team made up of highly skilled staff who are experienced in offering vaccinations to all high school aged children in Bolton.

The team are focusing their attention on the Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination.

The Bolton NHS Foundation Trust want to spread the word about the vaccination and boost uptake across communities.

If you are unsure if you child/ren has had none, 1 or 2 doses of the MMR vaccine, you can check your child’s red book or contact your GP Practice.

MMR vaccinations are currently being offered to any young person in Years 8-11 who we have identified as outstanding, with 1 or more of these vaccinations from our records. If you have received a consent form from the team, please return this as soon as possible to school or via the email address below.

If your child is in Year 7, or attends a Sixth Form College attached to a school, and is outstanding with one or more MMR Vaccinations please contact the Immunisation Team to discuss how your child can receive these vaccinations

These vaccinations can be given in school. However, the team will also be holding clinics in the school holidays by appointment only.

PLEASE NOTE: The Immunisation Team use Priorix to protect against Measles, Mumps and Rubella, which does not contain Porcine Gelatine
