WHO calls for higher measles vaccination rate in Ireland

The World Health Organisation says Ireland has one of the worst records in Europe at fighting measles.

Ireland is one of four countries named in a new study for having particularly low immunity against the disease among adult and children.

The World Health Organisation wants the potentially fatal disease eradicated in Europe by 2010, and is calling for a higher vaccination rate in Ireland.
