Q.

MMR

hi,

my son is 3.5 years old and had an MMR done at 15 months. We have just emigrated to the UK and on the NHS he is required to go for an MMR in Jan. In SA he would have gone for his next one at 6 years. Should he be going for one again this soon? Is it okay?

Thanks

You will need to follow the UK immunisation schedule now.The MMR booster is given earlier there than in SA.
