Problem: A&E units are reporting that measles is making a come back in many urban areas within the UK.
Tip: Pharmacists can offer the MMR vaccine with the PharmaDoctor MMR PGD. Contact with your local A and E department can see you receiving referrals from those who have been in contact with a person infected with Measles. A recent visit to the Chelsea and Westminster hospital A and E department a member of the PharmaDoctor team saw a notice stating that they were receiving over ten cases a month of people with Measles (mostly children). This is not a deprived neighborhood but an fluent area. Furthermore all those cases would have been in contact with hundreds of people many of who would now be considering a MMR vaccine if they had not had one in the past. Judging by the stats there is certainly demand!
