Highest MMR vaccine coverage in 25 years

Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) immunisation statistics report shows that MMR vaccination in England by age 2 is at the highest level since its introduction in 1988.

The HSCIC reported that in 2012 to 2013, 92.3% of children reaching their second birthday received MMR vaccination, which is the highest recorded level since the vaccine was first introduced in 1988. The latest MMR coverage figure also shows considerable improvement from the lowest recorded figure of 79.9% which occurred in 2003 to 2004.
