Measles and rubella elimination UK Strategy 2019
This report explains the UK's strategy towards measles and rubella elimination. It focuses on four core components: achieve and sustain ≥ 95% coverage in the routine childhood programme; achieve ≥ 95% coverage with 2 doses of MMR vaccine in older age cohorts through opportunistic and targeted catch-up; strengthen measles and rubella surveillance; and ensure easy access to high-quality, evidence-based information.
Conclusions: Most patients with a history of mild or moderate AEFI can be safely reimmunized. Additional studies are needed in patients with serious AEFIs who are less likely to be reimmunized.

A 10-year study of more than 650,000 children found no link between the measles, mumps and rubella vaccination series given to children and an increased risk of autism. The study of Danish children born to Danish mothers published in the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine agrees with earlier studies in concluding that there was no overall increased risk of developing autism among children who received the vaccine compared to those who did not, even if th ey had a sibling with autism, U.S.…
A study of 650,000 children has confirmed yet again that the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine does not increase the risk of getting autism
A Danish nationwide cohort study evaluating data from 657,461 children born between 1999 through 31 December 2010 and followed up until the age of 13 years concludes that MMR vaccination does not increase the risk for autism, nor does it trigger autism in susceptible children.
The Ohio teenager who made headlines for getting vaccinated against his mother’s wishes told the Senate on Tuesday that spreading vaccine misinformation is dangerous — but urged the public not to vilify those who do so. “Approaching this issue with the concern of education and addressing misinformation properly can cause change, as it did for me,” 18-year-old Ethan Lindenberger said while testifying before the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee on Tuesday. “Although the debate around vaccines is not necessarily centered around information, and concerns for health and sa...

Amid ongoing U.S. measles outbreaks, one of the largest studies to date provides fresh evidence that the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine does not cause autism.
