MMR immunisations rise

30th September 2011

New figures have shown a rise in MMR vaccinations.

Data from the NHS Information Centre has revealed that the percentage of the English child population immunised against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) by their second birthday continues to rise and is closing on the percentage high seen in the mid-1990s. In England in 2010/11, 89.1% of children had received the MMR vaccine by their second birthday, compared to 88.2% the previous year after a low of 79.9% in 203/04. The reported percentage of children vaccinated against other diseases is also growing.
