Measles guidance & MMR Vaccinations Service

Guidance for risk assessment, infection control and prevention

The UKHSA announced a national measles incident in January 2024 following an increase in confirmed cases.

In response to this, the ICB has issued guidance on risk assessment and infection prevention control measures.

In order to support you, our team has produced guidance summarising the measures to be taken in community pharmacy.

MMR Vaccination Service

The MMR Call and Recall campaign has also started in Greater Manchester to help encourage MMR vaccine uptake.

To address the rising case of Measles in Greater Manchester, a number of pharmacies are offering the MMR Vaccination.

Anyone aged 16 and over who has missed their MMR vaccinations can walk into a participating pharmacy.

Signposting to the service

To support with this, a poster to help patients find participating pharmacies has been produced. Please add this poster to your health promotion display to demonstrate your compliance with HLP.
