Vas Novelli: Hello I’m Vas, on triple vaccine, it’s a combination of measles vaccine, mumps vaccine and rubella vaccine all in the one chocked essentially. And it’s a major step fold in terms of immunization with the one vaccine; we can protect children against three diseases.
Female Speaker: We are going to also beginning in the measles, mumps and rubella injections saying one he had in 13 years old.
Male Speaker: So what you are saying to parents, who are little concerned about giving their child that triple vaccine.
Vas Novelli: Well the two things that we would say that with had a incredible amount of experience with them. There is one group of doctors who seem to think that there is a connection with MMR and balance disease but subsequent study that showing that this is not to be the case.
Female Speaker: Give me a big --
Vas Novelli: It doesn’t cools in inflammatory balance disease. It is a very safe vaccine and it seems to most countries in the world of introduce the MMR and its been in use for something like 20 years in some countries, with that any major problem. It seems in this country this -- about the side effect, potential side effects as cold the loss of confidence in the MMR.
Female Speaker: I don’t want believe and I have got 100 % in what they will say so this was 100% confident also some. The more people you speak to and who assign now to the MMR the more you because send yourself so it’s a general consensus around the hospital group that they are happy.
Vas Novelli: Before we introduced in MMR there are 10 to 11 drugs per year in his country for measles and Measles generally presents as hardly feel brain illness with the rush and running nose can jump to find some cough. And the complications for measles what we concerned about the major complications that were concerned about is Capelito and that requires one in 1000 patients. Around 20% to 30% of that patients can die. So patients can die from measles and the other 30-40%. Can have neurological disabilities in other words the permanently brain damaged. And that’s just from the measles.
Between 1970 and 1988 we use measles vaccine in low and we have any modest control of measles at that time. It was really early following the introduction of MMR in 1988 that we had an effective control of mumps, measles and rubella infection.
Female Speaker: We hear people signs things about -- for instant it probably would convince you about, when you heard the side with mothers of the children that are -- and then I should think again and the amount of people of, even miss blood didn’t even that make to having MMR he is starting vaccination.
Female Speaker: I just take of you one of you ready and but do you, if you worried, its plenty of results and help that always that give you information and if you worried and if they have as progressed as been about immunizations.
Female Speaker: Personally, I have do not -- some other person who is worried that the child has all because at the MMR and I just couldn’t take the risk myself but obviously I do not loss, speak lot of my friends at the MMR and not any one problems with it
Vas Novelli: Important that parents talk to the doctors and the pediatricians and the time they are advance in that MMR.
Male Speaker: You still think as better keep that one job rather than three separate jobs.
