Public Health England (PHE) continues to work with others to supply information for health professionals and the public on the benefits and risks associated with MMR.</p><p> </p><p>PHE and NHS England work closely with providers at a local level to target specific communities where uptake of the MMR vaccine is known to be poor.</p>
