Measles information for festival goers

Festivals and large public events are perfect conditions for catching measles - are you protected?

People planning to attend festivals and large public events are advised to check they are up to date with their Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccinations. If you are in any doubt, please check with your GP.   You may also check your medical records online if you are registered to do so with your GP practice.

NHS Choices provides answers to frequently asked questions about the MMR vaccine - HERE.
