It is Nicole's mum here. I have a quick question about MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella Vaccine).

There has been a few reports in the UK news about the links between MMR and autism and inflamatory disease. Nicole is due for her vaccine next Monday and I have been trying to look at both sides of the argument between MMR and single vaccines.

The government here says that it is safer to have MMR - immunisation is quick and early and there is very little time where Nicole would not be immunised. The government also says that there is no link between MMR and the possible side effects that some people are raising.

Has anyone else had to go through the same decision recently? What did you think / do?
