Looking for mums who've given child MMR vaccine recently

Hello, I'm a journalist for The Times (and a mum). I'm interested in speaking to anyone who decided against giving their child the MMR, but has now changed their mind following measles outbreak. I'm happy to discuss to give some background before you decide if you want to be featured. if there's anyone who might be able to help, I'd love to hear from you.

I just got off work sad

Am too late.

I sent you a PM begging for a landline to call, cos I live in Italy and can call landlines in Uk for free. Pay ten euros a month for the priviledge and desperate to call anybody other than my sister or my son's school.

Feel I really need to call lots of people in England to get my moneys worth of "free" calls.

I only work in the morning tomorrow. But I guess everybody else does M-F.

I've send you a message too - thanks for help both! I'm working on an article for tomorrow so would be great if anyone was free to speak today.

<gets excitied>

thanks thanks

It wasn't actually your fault , I've been here long enough to know about the colour coded thingie with OP posts. blush

But my brain appears to have gone shoe shopping (or similar) without me.

Hopefully before I am unleashed on the public again it will have come back (with some sparkly sandels) and I'll be able to engage it before typing. grin

Hi everyone,

Thanks to all who've reported.

We've now moved this thread to Media Requests which is where it belongs.

Didn't vac in 2000ish. Chsnged mind during first outbreak in the UK in...2005 ish.

Prepared to be brutally honest about how my mind was working back then and what changed.

Do not wish to be named.

There is, indeed, A Place for media requests:

I am sure that there is a particular forum for this sort of thing?

Just to say this should have gone in the correct section and I think should have been agreed with MNHQ first.
