Responding to new statistics which show childhood immunisation in Scotland has dropped in all-but-three of the 17 immunisation courses and boosters for children under the age of six, Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesperson Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
“It is seriously concerning news that less children are being vaccinated. Regrettably social media pseudoscience has clearly had some influence.
“Denying your children access to life-saving vaccines is irresponsible, ill-informed and dangerous. The government must do all they can to reverse this worrying trend.”
