Heartbreaking… And it’s a plea I’ve seen from parents today whose children legitimately can’t be vaccinated due to health issues and need to be protected.
Thank you for sharing. Roald Dahl’s story is just so sad and not uncommon in that day. With the recent outbreak of measles, I think people are really starting to worry about this disease again. Any illness in which 1 in 1000 children will develop encephalitis is a big deal. I don’t believe that scare tactics change anyones’s mind, but for those parents who vaccinate, these stories are a reminder about the importance of vaccinating on time. *For measles – after age 1 and again after age 4
