Vaccination rates among children have fallen across the board, official data revealed today.

Only 84 per cent of children under 5 in England were vaccinated against serious diseases such as diphtheria, tetanus and polio in March 2022.

Uptake fell as much as 1.3 percent compared to last year for the 14 routine vaccines offered to young people, such as measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).

95 percent of children under five did not receive any of the injections, a key target set by the World Health Organization to stop outbreaks.

Health chiefs said today that the “extremely worrying” figures were likely affected by the Covid pandemic.

As few as 84 per cent of children under the age of five in England were protected against serious illnesses such as measles, mumps and rubella in March 2022.
