Normally, I don't trust The Sun, or any other tabloid, but yeah, this is being confirmed elsewhere.
It's a little disingenuous to label it a "deadly" virus without the caveat that the odds of dying are very, very low. I believe the odds prior to the vaccine were something in the realm of 1 out of every 900-1000 children who contracted measles would die from it, so you're looking at odds of like 0.1%.
But with how contagious it is, there would still be plenty of people getting it, if anti-vaxxing became more prevalent. And since the odds of a vaccine-related injury are even lower, as well as the ingredients being safer now than they've ever been (particularly with regard to allergies), it's really dumb to avoid it unless you have to.
