This is a 1 per cent increase from 2005/06 figures and is the third successive year that MMR uptake has increased.
The Information Centre also revealed that uptake of vaccines against diphtheria, tetanus, haemopilus influenza B and meningitis C in children, before the age of two, remained the same as for the previous year at 93 per cent.
There was, however, a slight decrease in the number of people aged 65 and over who were immunised against influenza from 75 per cent in 2005/06 to 74 per cent in 2006/07, according to Information Centre figures.
