answer text <p>The Government takes all attempts to deliberately disrupt and confuse the information environment very seriously. It is difficult to attribute the slight decline in uptake of the MMR vaccinations to any one source, however, we will work with our colleagues in the Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England to assess the impact that disinformation and manipulation of social and traditional media may have on this issue.</p> more like this

answer text <p>There has been an increase in cases of measles since the end of 2017 with close to 1,000 cases reported in 2018. However, the majority of these cases (628/966, 65%) are in individuals aged less than one year old and over 15 years i.e. those not in recently vaccinated age cohorts.

answer text <p>Two Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccines are licensed for use in the United Kingdom: M-M-RVaxPro and Priorix. Both vaccines are on the National Health Service’s routine immunisation schedule. The quality, safety and efficacy of both M-M-RVaxPro and Priorix have been evaluated before they were given a Marketing Authorisation in Europe, and the Marketing Authorisation Holder for each vaccines is legally required to submit periodic safety update reports to the regulator, which are documents intended to provide an evaluation of the risk-benefit balance of a medicinal product at defined time points after its authorisation. The sites at which the products are manufactured are also required to undergo periodic inspections to ensure that they comply with Good Manufacturing Practices. Each batch of vaccines is tested by an official medicines control laboratory (OMCL). OMCL testing is independent of and in addition to the manufacturer’s testing. These procedures ensure that the MMR vaccines available in the UK are safe and efficacious and that the manufacturers/Marketing Authorisation holders are held accountable for their products.</p><p>A European Public Assessment Report (EPAR) for M-M-RVaxPro is available at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.ema.europa.eu/en/documents/scientific-discussion/m-m-rvaxpro-epar-scientific-discussion_en.pdf" target="_blank">https://www.ema.europa.eu/en/documents/scientific-discussion/m-m-rvaxpro-epar-scientific-discussion_en.pdf</a></p><p>Priorix was approved before public assessment reports were a requirement. The EPAR for M-M-RVaxPro contains a general summary of the manufacturing information that was provided during the assessment process; however, the specific details of the manufacturing process are confidential.</p>

answer text <p>In January 2019 Public Health England, Public Health Wales, The Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland and Health Protection Scotland published the UK Measles and Rubella elimination strategy 2019. A copy is attached.</p><p>The strategy sets out four core components required to maintain elimination of measles and rubella: achieving and sustaining very high coverage (more than or equal to 95%) with two doses of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) through the routine childhood immunisation programme; providing opportunities for MMR catch-up to all susceptible population groups over five years old; strengthening surveillance systems by rigorous case investigation and laboratory confirmation of suspected sporadic cases and outbreaks; and improving the availability and use of high-quality, evidence-based information for health professionals and the public on measles and MMR.</p><p>A multi-agency group has been established to take forward the actions in the strategy in England. Local teams including those in London are expected to work with local stakeholders to develop a measles and rubella elimination action plan.</p>
