Children should have to prove they have had the MMR jab before they are allowed to start school, an expert has claimed.
Children should receive their first dose of the vaccine at 13 months of age and the second at around three years and four months of age.
But one in four children under five has not had both injections.
Sir Sandy said: "Our attempts to persuade people have failed. The suggestion is that we ought to consider making a link which in effect would make it compulsory for children to be immunised if they are to receive the benefit of a free education from the state."
The change in their bright, loving toddler was sudden. Ten days before his first fit, Robert had been vaccinated against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR). Unlike his two older brothers, who had been given the jabs in single doses, Robert had been injected with three viruses at once.

Well, I wish the MMR had been around when I was younger, just turned 45 and caught the Mumps, it's not nice I can tell you. It's unpleasant, uncomfortable, infectious, and is messing my life up as I am not allowed out to go to work or anywhere else.
Read Bad Science by Ben Goldacre to get a debunk on the panic stories, interesting and funny book!
