Health experts are concerned that the uptake of the MMR vaccine is still far too low to provide 'herd immunity' for the population. Vaccination levels have risen to 85 per cent overall following the autism scare - but they are still well below the 95 per cent recommended by the World Health Organization in order to achieve global protection from the disease.
