Dear Parent,


Due to the fact that some children are not receiving the MMR vaccine or the single antigen measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines, measles infection is now back in many communities in the UK, Europe, and the USA. This infection is still widespread around the globe to the point that about a quarter of a million children die every year because of this disease. We do live in a ‘global village’. We do travel and if not immune, we can contract the disease (measles is the most contagious disease on this planet).


In 2007, some 1,000 cases of measles infection were recorded nationwide, and more than 200 cases were recorded in southeast London in the first five months of 2008.  Two children have died of measles infection since 2006. Many children survive with complications. Some children die a few years later from rare late complications of this disease (see SSPE in the table below, which compares the complications of measles infection to those of measles-containing vaccines, such as the MMR and the single-antigen vaccines).


                See: Measles Deaths quotes  Measles deaths--probably in vaccinated kids or in sick kids on immune suppressing medication--assuming you can get any data, they like to keep that secret.


We would urge all parents to have their children vaccinated with the MMR, and to ensure their children receive the two doses of the vaccine recommended. Good information on vaccinations in general, including the MMR, can be found on the following websites of the Department of Health:

http://www.immunisation.nhs.uk/   Information on immunisations, safety and risks.


http://www.mmrthefacts.nhs.uk/    Information specifically about the MMR vaccine.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the surgery. I shall be delighted to spend some time with you to discuss immunisations and answer your questions.


He never replied to an e mail asking him why he says MMR doesn't kill when the gov' has paid out for MMR deaths.


With best wishes.


Yours sincerely



Dr George Kassianos

Table: Comparison of complications between measles infection and MMR vaccine or measles-containing (single) vaccine



Measles disease


See: Measles risk hyped

MMR or measles-containing VACCINE

Rash & temperature

Almost 100%

5 – 15%  (day 5-12, lasting for 3 days)

Ear infection

One in 20


See: Hearing


One in 16


Chest infection

(pneumonia, bronchitis)

One in 20-25


Febrile convulsions

One in 200

One in 1,000 (day 6-11) no evidence of increased risk for epilepsy


 Mumps encephalitis

One in 1,000

 One in 300

"Doctors maintain that the (MMR) inoculation is necessary to prevent measles encephalitis, which they say occurs about once in 1,000 cases. After decades of experience with measles, I question this statistic, and so do many other pediatricians. The incidence of 1/1,000 may be accurate for children who live in conditions of poverty and malnutrition, but in the middle-and upper-income brackets, if one excludes simple sleepiness from the measles itself, the incidence of true encephalitis is probably more like 1/10,900 or 1/100,000."------Dr Mendelsohn



Probably none

See: Meningitis

The last MMR (Urabe)was withdrawn due to meningitis.


See: Encephalitis Encephalomyelitis



England & Wales

One in 100,000

(possibly up to 7 to 11                in 100,0000)


One in 25,000

One in 8,000 if infected under the age of 2 years








One in 100,000

Thrombocytopenia          (low platelets       

- associated with rubella)


One in 3,000 (after rubella)


One in 32,000
Thrombocytopenia purpura

Joint pains (associated with the rubella)

Up to 70% of adult women who contract rubella

25% of adults receiving rubella-containing vaccine

Congenital Rubella Syndrome

One in 4 women

(if a woman becomes infected early in pregnancy)



See: Rubella

Death (measles, mumps)

 Death from measles

One in 2,500 - 5,000

 One in 3,000

(see: MMR deaths)

* Subacute Sclerosing PanencEphalitis – fatal late complication of measles infection. Child dies 5 to 10 years after contracting measles infection.
