Q.

Measles

Apparently the government wants all the kids to have another measles vaccination. My son is almost 4 and had his measles vaccination end of 2006 and his MMR Sept 2007. Is it neccesary for him to have another one?

As it is just 2 years since your son had the MMR and has had his earlier measles immunisation, he should be adequately protected against measles now. He will need another MMR at 6 years.
