Czech Television reports that an increasing number of parents in the Czech Republic are choosing not to vaccinate their children, and consequently the country faces a serious risk of previously eradicated diseases returning.

According to the Ministry of Health, immunisation rates in the country are dropping alarmingly, including that of the well-known Measles, Rubella and Mumps (MMR) vaccine, which is required by law (and subject to a fine if not administered) and currently stands at only 83% of the population.

According to experts, the collective immunity of the population fails once this falls below 90%.
