Information about measles vaccination drop-in clinics

Measles is a viral illness that spreads very easily. Spending only 15 minutes with someone who has it can be enough to catch it, even up to 4 days before they have a rash. 

It can have serious and life changing consequences, and can sometimes kill. 

You are very unlikely to contract measles if you’ve had it before or have had your full dose of the MMR vaccine. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your child against measles.

Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust runs a confidential secure text messaging service for parents of children aged 0-19 years called Chat Health. The service operates Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm, excluding bank holidays. All texts will be responded to by a public health nurse (health visitor/school nurse) within 24 hours. Outside of the service working hours, you’ll receive a message back to inform you that your text will be responded to once the line reopens.

Should you require urgent health advice in the meantime, please contact your GP, visit an NHS walk-in centre or call NHS 111. For emergencies, dial 999 or visit A&E.
