More Parents in U.K. Refuse Childhood Vaccinations

In late 2023, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that there had been a decline in state required vaccines from 95 percent to 93 percent among kindergarteners during the 2020-2021 school year compared to the 2019-2020 school year.1 2 Now, public health officials in the United Kingdom also are reporting lower uptake of childhood vaccinations in that country.

Recent data from the U.K. Health Security Agency (UKHSA) showed a slight increase in the uptake of some specific childhood vaccines between January 2024 and March 2024. However, health officials say that overall vaccination targets are still not being met. The U.K. follows the World Health Organization’s (WHO) guideline target of 95 percent of under five-year-olds to be vaccinated.3

U.K.’s 6-in-1 Shot for Children Has Lower Than Expected Uptake

The National Health Service (NHS) in the U.K. recommends a three dose 6-in-1 combination vaccine for babies given at 8, 12 and 16 weeks old. The 6-in-1 combination vaccine includes vaccines for diphtheria, hepatitis B, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), polio, tetanus, and pertussis.4

The uptake for the 6-in-1 vaccine and measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine exceeded the targets in Scotland and Wales. However, vaccination goals for the entire U.K. were not met. For the U.K. as a whole, only 91.5 percent of children under two years old had received the 6-in-1 vaccine, and only 84.5 percent of children under five years old had received the combination vaccine.5

Vaccine coverage for the first dose of MMR, which is given at age one in the U.K., dropped 0.5 percent to 92.5 percent. Uptake for the second dose of MMR given between three to five years old increased by 0.2 percent but only to 85.2 percent.6

Vaccination Campaign Launched in U.K. to Boost Uptake

In March 2024 during a measles outbreak in the U.K., public health officials implemented a vaccination campaign to boost vaccination rates in children, which they stated have steadily decreased over the past decade, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.7

In a video created by UKHSA streamed on television, radio and online, children tell their parents and caregivers:

Our generation’s risk of illnesses like measles and whooping cough is rising. If we’re not vaccinated, we’re not protected.8

Parents in U.K. Question Safety of Childhood Vaccines

Just like in the U.S.,9 10 many parents in the U.K. were questioning the safety of childhood vaccines prior to the recent measles vaccination campaign. In a Facebook group for parents, a mother asked for advice in November 2023 on the MMR vaccine because she had received a letter from the NHS asking her to take her daughter to get the vaccine. She said she does not know whom to trust. She wrote:

I’ve done some research but feel like a lot of the info on the web is pro-vaccine. Just trying to learn about it all and make the right decisions. Thank you in advance.11

The post received hundreds of replies with stories of children that were injured by the MMR vaccine, others providing information on the risks of the vaccine, and other resources from parents. One parent responded:

No no no. Avoid them all. Once they’re injected into the bloodstream, the metals and toxins have access to the brain and every organ! Arm yourself with information to decline because they will pressure you.”12

Another parent said:

I keep getting letters for all my kids. It’s scaremongering. I’ve threatened my surgery with harassment if they don’t stop sending me letters.13

Dr. Selvaseelan Selvarajah, a general practitioner in the U.K. who is a vaccine proponent said:

Since COVID we’ve seen a lot more hesitancy. Theories about the MMR and COVID vaccines have merged.14

  1. The key take away; Approximately nine out of ten parents still line their children up for systematic institutionalized abuse by the medical industrial complex. Propaganda works, and works very well on most people. Be afraid! Be very afra…… Hey, is that an extra piece of pizza from last night? Hand that over here dude, and get me a beer and smoke too. Awesome, thanks. Where were we? Oh yes; irrational fears of death if you don’t inject poisonous toxins directly into your childs blood supply. Miraculously, you don’t actually need one yourself in order to stay alive but could get some extra vaccines if you wanted. It’s important to protect the children. By poisoning them. Science™! The unvaxxed kids just need to keep crossing their fingers they make it to the age of eighteen years old, because at all times before that point, they are not protected from themselves or anyone else. After they make it across the finish line, then they’ll be fine, right as rain, no more participation restrictions. Monetizing the power of suggestion was a real money maker. They get all sick and down from the shots, but keep coming back for more because they actually believe they can inject physical health with a needle. This is so amazing. Pass me the cigar.

  2. This is perhaps a silver lining that came out of the covid vaccine mandates. People saw how the governments forced these vaccines on the whole population, and adults, who can actually speak out for themselves unlike children, were harmed. Now, there is an all-time low level of trust in our nations health governing bodies. People are realizing these vaccines that have been pushed on children for decades, and now adults the last 3 years, and NOT always “safe and effective”. I’ve heard more people willing to at least entertain the idea that vaccines are harmful than I have in my whole life. Perhaps the tides have turned. Hopefully, not too late.
