MMR injection rates up to 92 per cent

Have your say

MORE parents in Sheffield are granting permission for their children to be given the once-controversial MMR injection, new NHS figures have shown.

The uptake rate for the vaccination against measles, mumps and rubella in 2011-12 increased to 92.4 per cent for children under two, compared with 91.3 during the previous year.

In the 1990s many parents avoided the jab after it was wrongly linked with autism.
