Webinar: Measles vaccination (MMR)

Date: Tuesday 4 June

Time: 12.15pm – 12.45pm


 Join us for our upcoming webinar for health professionals on the topic of MMR vaccination.


This session will explore the clinical considerations for the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, with a primary focus on measles.


We will cover essential information from the Immunisation Handbook and examine the impact and global burden of measles disease.


The webinar will cover safe screening procedures, key precautions, and contraindications associated with the vaccine. We will also discuss the co-administration of MMR with other immunisations, the appropriate age for administration (including dose zero), and potential responses to the vaccine.


Presented by IMAC medical advisor Dr Joan Ingram and IMAC immunisation education facilitator Abbey Palmer.
