A free MMR vaccination drive is running for three weeks in Abu Dhabi, to protect children against measles.

The vaccination is available to those aged from one to five.

Parents in the UAE capital are being advised to have their children vaccinated, even if they have already received a dose, for additional protection as the number of cases of measles has risen globally. 

The drive has been launched by the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre and is available at 58 centres in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra until June 17.
