Measles, mumps and rubella vaccination service clinical update

This course is designed to provide an annual clinical update on measles, mumps and rubella vaccinations.


This training must be used in combination with the practical courses (basic life support, anaphylaxis and practical vaccination skills) you are required to complete in order to make a declaration of competence in this area of vaccination.

On successful completion of the quiz at the end, we will add a certificate of completion to your Pharmacy in Practice learning dashboard. We will also award you a one-hour CPD achievement. This will also be stored as a record of achievement within your Pharmacy in Practice dashboard.


Background to this course

Measles and mumps are acute viral infections caused by viruses of the paramyxoviridae family.

Measles is caused by a morbillivirus and mumps is caused by a paramyxovirus. Disease tends to be mild to moderate but with a risk of further complications.

Rubella is caused by a togavirus. Whilst it tends to cause only mild disease there is a risk of significant complications, in particular, if infection occurs during pregnancy.

All three diseases are highly infectious but are now uncommon in the UK due to successful vaccination programmes with effective vaccines.

They are all notifiable diseases; suspected cases should be reported promptly to ensure public health actions can be taken swiftly.

Please read our CPD disclaimer before enrolling. We recommend that you consult the BNF or the specific summary of product characteristics for dosing decisions.
