You are here: Waterloo \ Opinion \ WHY IS MMR THE ONLY MEASLESS JAB?
27 February 2009
In your issue of February 12 you draw attention to the fact that measles cases have rocketed by 1,200 per cent.
The reason for the rapid and potentially dangerous increase in measles is that despite the low level of take-up of the MMR vaccine, the NHS refuses to offer the choice of an alternative vaccination against measles only, which many parents who are rightly or wrongly frightened of MMR would accept for their children.
I do hope that none of these children die or have any serious after-effects.

Measles, mumps and rubella are all potentially serious viral infections. The provision of single jabs for these diseases would not be a wise move. It would involve giving three seperate injections to a child on three individual occasions, plus additional booster jabs for each vaccine. Each vaccine results in temporary local inflammation and pain at the injection site. There would be increased costs in terms of vaccine and staff time (as well as increased visits and inconvenience for the child and his/her parents). Large scale studies have looked at tens of thousands of children and there is absolutely no increased risk of autism in MMR vaccinees. This is as close to a fact as one can get in medical research. Every medical intervention carries a risk but the risk is LESS for MMR than for single jabs, due to the decreased number of vaccinations needed. Every parent should give their child MMR.
