A spokesman from the Irish Traveller Movement in Britain confirmed there was a problem within the community when it came to immunising
Dr Ram Reddy, a member of the Rotary Club of Monkseaton Centenary, in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, has completed a fourmonth spell immunising
youngsters in Andhra Pradesh.
That's because there are always risks when immunising
and it takes years to test safely before making it widely available.
The current, long-established method of immunising
children is to give them a single four-in-one injection for diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and Hib and, at the same time, the polio vaccine by mouth.
Scientists at Edinburgh University believe the vaccine may reduce the harmful effects of toxins thought to contribute to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) and that immunising
the child early could be key to the vaccine's success.
