The Department and the National Health Service conducted a joint communication campaign in early 2022 and will launch a national catch-up campaign in autumn 2022. This targets parents and carers of children aged one to six years old who have missed one or both MMR vaccines. The Department continues to work with the NHS and the UK Health Security Agency to achieve 95% coverage for the MMR programme.
