    right my uni sent me a letter saying the 1994 mmr vaccne apparantly didn't include mumps or something? and that we should all have 2 doses of it in our lifetimes. so do i need to go get one from the practise nurse before i go away?

    Ask your uni. They're best placed to advise you as to what they expect.

    You need to go down to your doctor and check what they have given you. A lot of people our age were given the full MMR first time, and then the MR the second time (The MR was around in 1994....and most people our age had it done that year....however you might be an exception...so just check).....if you've had the MMR and the MR you need to get another full MMR shot!

    Probably - I recieved a similar letter from my university today but in my case it is the individual's responsibility to ensure they are vacinated before they start their course.

    I had the MMR jab in the first week, I told the nurse I know I was vaccinated when I was little(2 years oldish) but I dont think Ive had it since, she said thats the case with most of the people our age, which is why they want people to go and get there 2nd vaccination, as youre not fully immunised until youve had 2 lots, so I had it done, stung more than any other injection ive had before, but it only lasted a second, so it was cool.

    Well obviously it affects different people in different ways - like I couldn't feel it, it really hurt some people. Now I feel quite unwell, other people could feel fine.
    When I had it done the nurse said you shouldn't have it done if you have given blood recently. So you're just a fool, boy - not brave
