According to the recent report of Daily Mail, the UK faces a measles resurgence prompting the UK Health Security Agency to declare a rare ‘national incident.’ Despite medical science’s effective vaccination against the disease for over 60 years, the MMR jab’s uptake, offering almost complete protection has hit a decade low. Alarming figures reveal that in some areas nearly half of children remain unprotected well below the World Health Organisation’s recommended 95 percent inoculation rate. Causes range from parental ignorance of vaccination programs to complacency and the impact of ‘anti-vax’ misinformation circulating on social media and school grounds.
