British government policy on measles vaccination for children has changed for no discernible reason notes Christina England, writing on vactruth.com, citing an internal document from 1968.
The document, titled “Notes On the Use and Storage of Measles Vaccine (Live Attenuated) for Routine Vaccines,” clearly states in Section 7 that the vaccine should not be given to children under the age of nine months old. According to the paper’s authors, the presence of maternal antibodies in the blood of such children interferes with the action of the vaccine, making it ineffective. Instead, the government recommended vaccination at the age of two after vaccination for diptheria, polio, tetanus and whooping cough.
