AMAZON has been accused of spreading anti-vaccine myths by producing a kids’ book suggesting the MMR jab is dangerous.
The £10 bedtime story Sarah Doesn’t Want To Be Vaccinated tells of a young girl whose parents refuse to let her have her injections.
The 40-page book tells how Sarah’s parents prevented her from having her jabs because “a lot of people have gotten really sick from vaccination”.
In it, Sarah’s friend Laura contracts measles despite having the MMR jab, suggesting the life-saving vaccine is useless and even dangerous.
Health experts blasted the book by Andreas Bachmair and Madlen Maker, as a “vile anti-vaccination pamphlet”.
