How to get vaccinated

Where should I go to get vaccinated?

If you've not had 2 doses of the MMR vaccine:

  • Children aged 1-4 years: contact your GP to get vaccinated.
  • Primary school-aged children: will be offered their vaccination by the school nurse. Your school nurse will contact you. 
  • Secondary school children: will be offered their vaccination by the school nurse. Your school nurse will contact you.
  • Sixth form and college students: will be offered a vaccination on-site. Your sixth form or college provider will make you aware of the MMR vaccine clinic dates and times. 
  • School staff: if there is an on-site vaccination clinic you should use this. Alternatively, you should contact your GP or visit one of the drop-in clinics - details of clinics are listed on this page. 
  • Adults aged 16-30 years: you will be prioritised and will need to contact your GP or visit a drop-in clinic to get vaccinated. 
  • Adults aged 30-55 who work in high-risk settings, you will be prioritised and will need to contact your GP or visit a drop-in clinic to get vaccinated. High-risk settings include some NHS, social care and prison settings where infection needs to be identified quickly to minimise outbreaks. 
  • Adults over the age of 30: contact your GP or visit a drop-in clinic to get vaccinated.

Drop-in clinics

If you or your child have not had 2 MMR vaccines, you can visit a drop-in clinic:

  • If you're unable to accept the appointment you've been offered at school, sixth form or college.
  • If you are 4 years old and over.
  • If you would prefer to visit a drop-in clinic.

Please only visit the clinics at the times indicated and avoid ringing for appointments, unless otherwise indicated. 

There are currently no clinics planned. We'll list any clinics that get planned here.
