At Charlotte Keel Medical Practice (CKMP) due to the diversity of our practice population and particular concerns around MMR vaccination in some ethnic groups, we have had low uptake for MMR vaccination. In Mar-18 searches of the CKMP patient population indicated an uptake of 76% in the age group 3yr4m – 6yrs for having received both doses of MMR. This compares to a national aspiration to achieve a 95% update and the PHOF 2015/16 data which showed an average uptake of 88%.
