Earlier this week, a measles outbreak was occurring in California.
Such diseases used to be a thing of the past or the subject of a Charles Dickens novel. It was not uncommon in previous centuries for parents to watch one or more children die from diseases such as measles.
Since the 1950’s vaccinations has become the norm. But some parents do not vaccinate their children for a variety of reasons.
Before I go any further, I need to state that I do not have any children. But I believe that unless there is a specific reason that a child should not be vaccinated, there no reason that a child should not be vaccinated. If not for the sake of the individual child or their immediate family, but for the sake of the surrounding community. Please vaccinate your child, you could be saving more than their life.
