Hampshire leads the way with MMR jabs

Daily Echo: Hampshire leads the way with MMR jabs Hampshire leads the way with MMR jabs

The proportion of children having the MMR jab is at its highest level for more than a decade - with the uptake highest in Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and Thames Valley.

In this area spread, 93.5% of children were vaccinated, according to the Health and Social Care Information Centre's (HSCIC) NHS immunisation statistics report.

Around England, nine in 10 children under two received the first dose of the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine between 2011 and 2012, according to the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).

The HSCIC said the level of uptake in England is at its highest since 1997-98.

However, MMR coverage is still falling short on the World Health Organisation's (WHO) target of at least 95% coverage.

In London the figure is significantly lower, with just 86.1% of children under two having the first MMR jab in 2011-12.

Children should receive their first dose of MMR vaccine between 12 and 13 months and then a second dose between three years four months and five years.

The uptake of the vaccination programme has varied over the last two decades. Many parents shied away from giving their children the jab following the publication of a potential link between the vaccination and autism and Crohn's disease. However, the study that initiated the controversy has since been discredited.

HSCIC chief executive Tim Straughan said: "Today's report marks a significant point in the continued rise of MMR coverage since it hit a low in 2003-04 - as for the first time in 14 years nine out of 10 children in England have had the MMR vaccine before they turn two.

"However, although MMR coverage at two years has risen in all regions of England, and overall the country's coverage has increased in recent years, the national figure remains below the WHO target of at least 95%."

Thanks to the unscrupulous fraud of the disgraced former doctor Andrew Wakefield.

For those not suffering with tunnel-vision and who seek the truth, open your mind to the below before accepting the version portrayed by vested interests.

Ah, condemn first, think after or in your case not.

Most video communication nowadays will eventually find its way to YouTube or similar public arena, so to denounce the avenue of communication instead of the content will mean ignoring everything in the public media.

You can then wave good bye to free speech and open justice, to be replaced by official dictate and corporate agendas.

One day your health or that of a loved on will suffer because you placed an unnecessary obstacle between you and the truth.

Or, instead of everything being a vast conspiracy of NWO lizards and jews, maybe the mundane reality of people's suffering hinges on the workings of the economic and political systems we're governed by. It's not as exciting mind you, and doesn't give you the satisfaction of thinking that only you and your fellow travellers know 'The Truth', so you may want to pass it by.

Conspiracy theorists are fuelled by ego, nothing more. The reality is no less unpleasant, but far less 5exy.

I only hope that those that peddled Andrew Wakefield's fraud can sleep soundly in their beds knowing of the number of children that have suffered permanent disability because of it.

(Note to the Echo - no libel there, he was found guilty of his fraudulent claims and struck off by the GMC)

By vested interests do you mean Wakefield?? He had an alternative vaccine ready to be produced under his copyright and stood to make millions.

So had a very strong vested interest.
Now rather than finding a unsubstantiated link to Wakefield's claims by ....Wakefield can you locate any research that actually supports his claim?
here is a very small sample of peer reviewed robust research

and to finish a link for Jenny McCarthy's dead count looking at deaths and diseases resulting from his false claims.

Trials and analysis backed by BigPharma and institutions with financial dependency will unsurprisingly always arrive at the conclusion that best feeds the medical industry.

Doctors are often as much the victim as their patients because of the financial muscle that pulls the strings defines the standard of care permitted.
