Materials have been developed to support an NHS ‘Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) – Help Us Help You, Get Protected’ campaign. The materials, which include posters and social media assets, encourage people to get vaccinated for MMR in their GP practice, if they haven’t already. There are two new posters, one version featuring a nurse, and a version that features a nurse and child (for the important parents of young children audience).
Research shows that healthcare professionals are the most trusted source of information on vaccination. Their positive voice and ability to carefully correct any myths around vaccination are a vital part in maintaining and improving vaccination uptake.
The posters and reception counter cards are being sent to every GP practice in the country in January. They make it clear that two doses of the MMR vaccination are required for full protection and that a catch-up vaccination is available to those that aren’t fully immunised.
These materials can also be downloaded via the resources section and are available for general practice and other healthcare settings use, these include posters and social media assets.
Additional measles and MMR publications from Public Health England are available for order including digital resources to promote vaccination via healthpublications.gov.uk
