MMR vaccination rate query for Health Minister

MHK to raise issue in House of Keys

What's the Department of Health and Social Care doing to help those who've missed doses of the MMR vaccine?

That's the subject of one query from Ramsey MHK Dr Alex Allinson at next week's sitting of the House of Keys, who's also seeking details of the current vaccination rate on the Island.

The jab is designed to offer protection against measles, mumps and rubella, but the number of new measles cases globally has been rising recently.

Dr Allinson fears vaccination rates may be down due to misinformation.
