The MMR vaccine can also be given on the NHS to adults who may need it.
- people born between 1970 and 1979, who may have only been vaccinated against measles.
- people born from 1980 to 1990, who may not be protected against mumps
Check with your GP if you're not sure whether you have had the MMR vaccine.
If in doubt, go ahead and have it. Even if you have had it before, it won't harm you to have a second, or even third, course of the vaccination.
