The MMR immunisation rate in England has fallen for the fourth year in a row to only 87% with in some areas only 67% vaccinated. There have been 230 cases of measles in just the first three months of 2019.
In Scotland the rate is 97% and has been so for 10 years. There have been 10 cases in Scotland, reported so far in 2019. All have been ‘imported’ from England or beyond.
‘Before vaccination, measles was a very common childhood disease in Scotland and deaths attributable to measles were substantial.’
Scotland is now at risk from County Lines drug gangs, listeria, fracking, FGM and now a deadly measles epidemic. Professor John Robertson, a satisfied regular at NHS Ayrshire facilities, has called for border screening to stop the spread of the deadly measles virus.
