Doctors have registered an increased incidence of measles in the Czech Republic, reporting over 100 cases, mostly in Prague. In previous years there were only isolated cases of the disease.
A combined vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella was introduced in this country in 1969 which practically eradicated these diseases in the Czech Republic and the increased incidence today is ascribed to a growing fear of vaccinations on the part of some parents who put off getting their children vaccinated for as long as possible.
