NHS England and NHS Improvement, Public Health England and key stakeholders are implementing actions from the Measles and rubella UK elimination strategy 2019, to increase take-up of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. This includes:

- Implementing a catch-up vaccination programme for 10 and 11-year olds through general practices, to continue into 2020/21;

- Notifications from Child Health Information Services to help general practices identify children with due and overdue vaccinations; and

- Initiatives led by local teams to address inequalities in vaccine uptake, such as a targeted MMR catch-up campaign with 16 universities in October 2019.
