Large increase in non-immunity to rubella (german measles) across Norfolk
We have recently been advised of a huge increase in non-immunity to rubella in Norfolk which has resulted with increased numbers of pregnant ladies reaching ante-natal clinics and finding they do not have immunity against rubella.
This oboviously puts their baby at risk if they were to catch rubella during pregnancy.
If you are trying for a baby or thinking of becoming pregnant and you have not already had a blood test to confirm you have sufficient immunity please book an appointment with the health care assistant to have your immunity levels checked - if they are low we can then vaccinate you with the MMR vaccine.
If you are female and have not had a vaccination (or you have a female child over 10 who has not yet had a rubella vaccination), please contact the surgery.
