Assembly worried by vaccine uptake
The London Assembly wants action taken to boost flagging uptake rates of childhood vaccines.
A report by the Assembly said the number of children being vaccinated in the capital has fallen since 1996.
Only 73 per cent of London's two-year-olds have had MMR and just 88 per cent have been immunised against polio. This compares with the national averages of 85 per cent for MMR and 94 per cent for polio.
