'GP told me single jabs were illegal' By Lorraine Fraser (Filed: 05/08/2001)
MICHAELA ELLIOTT-VASS took her six-year-old daughter Holly to one of the clinics run by Desumo in Worcester earlier this year because she wanted the child to be given separate injections for measles, mumps and rubella.
"I have a friend whose son was damaged by the MMR and I got Crohn's disease when I was seven months' pregnant with my daughter. I felt it was too much for a child to have so many immuno-suppressant drugs in one injection," said Mrs Elliott-Vass, of Ross-on-Wye.
She visited her GP two years ago to enquire about separate vaccinations. The doctor promised to try to get the single vaccines for her daughter but, after a long wait, he told her: "Sorry, you can't have it. It is against the law now."
She said: "He was very against me having them separately, he turned round to me and said, `I think your daughter should have MMR and if she gets blind or dies you have only got yourself to blame', which I thought was dreadful. They say you are putting your child at risk by leaving a gap between the individual vaccinations. Well, she's waited six years, what risk?"
She added: "I think the Government's decision to withdraw the single measles vaccine was absolutely appalling. People should have a free choice."
Describing the service at the Desumo clinic as "fantastic", she said: "I was very, very impressed with it. It would be a terrible shame if they could not continue."
