The MMR vaccine is the combined vaccination that protects again measles, mumps and rubella. Vaccinations against these 3 illnesses are vital as they can be easily spread between unvaccinated people and lead to serious health problems. The MMR vaccination is delivered in 2 doses injected into the upper arm, which must be administered at least 4 weeks apart. If you plan on travelling for work, we advise you to have your first vaccination at least 6 weeks before you travel, so you have received both doses 2 weeks before your leave. Suitable from the age of one.
