Statement regarding potential measles outbreak

4 January 2001
Action Research - the leading medical research charity that helped fund the testing of Britain’s first rubella vaccine - said it understood the possible concerns of parents, however voiced concerns that the level of vaccinations in the UK should not drop. Director of the charity John Grounds said: “It is generally considered that measles is a threat of the past in this country but this is only due to the comprehensive vaccination programme that is in place. We would urge parents to seriously consider the huge risks associated with not having their children vaccinated.” Duncan Barkes Press Office - Action Research 01403 327404
