I fear for children’s safety when I hear that Health Minister Simon Harris continues to push for mandated vaccines ‘Harris targets online lies over vaccines’ (Irish Examiner, August 28). Harris talks about scaremongering as the cause of some parents not choosing vaccination for their children, yet the real scaremongering emanates from government and media campaigns. Quotes of a 200% measles increase are totally misleading when Irish cases are only in double figures and are not out of sync with historical fluctuations in recent decades.
