The Prime Minister has ordered urgent action to boost the number of children and young people receiving vaccinations following a rise in cases of measles. There were 231 confirmed cases of measles in the UK during the first quarter of 2019, and Britain has lost its measles-free status with the World Health Organisation (WHO) three years after the virus was eliminated in the country. Mr Johnson set out the plans to improve vaccination rates – including for the measles, mumps and rubella jab (MMR) – on a visit to a hospital in Cornwall (left). His comments come as Public Health England revealed today one in seven five-year-olds in England may not have had both of their MMR jabs. In London, the figure rises to around one in four children (right).
