Some UK Doctors Don't Want to Re-vaccinate Children email to the editor

According to an article on Yahoo news, Doctors in the UK and not so sure about giving a second dose of measles/mumps/rubella (MMR) vaccine to children, even though the vaccine is probably not effective without a booster shot.

The information for the article was gathered from the Lancet, a UK medical journal. According to the same article, some nurses surveyed believed there may be links between the MMR vaccine and an increased risk of Crohn's disease or autism.

While the article states that any vaccine link to autism is highly controversial and "widely rejected" by researchers, nearly half of all UK health care professionals surveyed, claimed to have concerns regarding whether or not to give a second dose of MMR to children. According to the article, regular use of a second dose of MMR was introduced in 1996, as a result of measles outbreaks in 1993.
