A mum has shared her daughter’s harrowing experience on Facebook with the aim of encouraging other parents to vaccinate their children. UK mum Jilly Moss shared photos of her newborn daughter, Alba, who contracted measles.
In 2016, the U.S. experienced more than 6,000 cases of the highly contagious viral disease — more mumps cases than the country had seen annually in 10 years.
In the video, Cormit describes how she was offered the vaccination during her 28th week of pregnancy, "but being the healthy, fit, organic woman that I am, I said ‘Leave me alone, I don’t need this crap’”.
The new vaccination will be offered to all babies in the UK. A new programme to vaccinate all newborn babies against meningitis B has started in the UK. Once approved, the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt confirmed that it should be available by the end of the year – making it’s September launch ahead of schedule.
