What are the most important vaccinations to get?
A draft bill to come before the German parliament envisages daycare centers reporting parents who do not seek medical advice on vaccinating their children. The move comes amid a measles epidemic.
A new study has found that cases of the highly contagious disease have jumped significantly in the past year. Adults are poorly informed about their own vulnerability, the report found.
At total of 15 children have died in South Sudan after being given contaminated measles vaccines. Health officials said that the vaccines had been improperly refrigerated and were also administered by an untrained team.
Germany's vaccination rate for the highly contagious measles virus falls well below WHO targets. Authorities are calling for people to stay up to date with their vaccinations.
