Nick Clegg says his children have all had the MMR jab

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has told LBC radio that his three sons have all had the MMR jab.

He added:

I think you have to have trust in the people who look at this.

They have no axe to grind, they just want to do the right thing and come up with the right science.

They have said very categorically that the concern about a link between MMR and other conditions is just not proven, and they say really explicitly that it is really bad for your children's health if you don't take this action.

I really would urge parents, whatever your misgivings, do what people who know about this most say is right for your children - get that course of jabs done.
