Just came across this response to "Melanies Marvelous Measles"
It includes the story "Measles, A Dangerous Illness" by Roald Dahl - the author of "Georges Marvelous Medicine" among many other children's books, and father of a daughter who died age seven of (a rare) brain swelling due to measles infection.
I posted in Mindful Vaccination because I don't want to debate it right now. Actually it's made me quite upset. But I thought some of the mothers here might appreciate knowing it exists.
