World Health Organization recommends the usage of MMR vaccines to all children's and views that MMR vaccine is the best form which can protect children's from infection of Mums, Measles and Rubella. The Spokesperson for WHO says, "Our overwhelming aim is for parents to have their children immunized with MMR, for them to be confident that this is the right thing to do, and to provide parents and health professionals with access to clear factual information about the vaccine and MMR is recognized by the World Health Organization as having an outstanding safety record".
