There has apparently been a surge in cases of measles among children during the summer months; possibly one of the reasons behind this is the reluctance of some parents to allow their offspring to be immunised against the illness with the MMR jab, given the controversy over the injection which suggested that it may be linked to autism among young children.

In fact, most studies from recent years have suggested that the MMR jab is safe, and you can find a list of research projects which have examined this topic at MMR: The Facts. The National Library for Health also contains a lot of information on this subject, in the form of news stories and research reviews.
