Coronavirus: Child vaccine warning over ‘other deadly diseases’

Public Health Wales says it has seen a small drop in routine vaccination numbers since the coronavirus pandemic.

Immunisation jabs are seen as “crucial” to preventing outbreaks of diseases such as measles and meningitis.

Dr Phil White, of the General Practitioners Committee (GPC) Wales, said people fearing Covid-19 should be “equally afraid” of those illnesses.

The childhood immunisation programme protects against diseases including whooping cough, measles, meningitis and pneumonia.


Parents are afraid of coronavirus but I wish they would also be afraid of other illnesses that are equally as deadly.

We could end up in a position where we get an infectious disease outbreak at the end of this because of a large cohort of unvaccinated children.

Don’t Stew – Ask Sue Parenting Q & A

Q. Dear Sue we are really struggling with my 5 year old who is still having toilet accidents. Not sure what to do, he argues back when we remind him and ask him to go, says he forgets, doesn’t seem to mind sitting in his own wetness and getting cross doesn’t help either! I’ve tried to talk to him about it in a caring and sensitive way but he just doesn’t seem to care. I honestly just think he’s lazy! Help!’ from Kate Gregory
