Anti-vaccing isnít a new phenomenon...

My parents wouldnít have any of their four children vaccinated. Apparently some friends of theirs had lost a baby after vaccination in the late 1940ís.

My sisters and I had the usual childhood viruses, chicken pox, German measles, hooping cough, etc, but nothing major or fatal.

Unlike many of my contemporaries, I have no vaccination marks on my arms, but I had to have the polio sugar cube before I started teaching.

However, when it came to my daughter, (and that was about the time that Andrew Wakefield was pontificating on autism and the triple vaccine) she had them all.

I taught a lovely girl who caught measles from younger siblings, aged about 13. She died. It was the first time I was aware measles could be so serious, particularly in older children.


All these so-called simple childhood illnesses can have nasty implications - rubella dangerous to unborn babies, (I think) measles can cause blindness as well as death, mumps can cause sterility in males, the chicken-pox virus can lie dormant & strike an adult as shingles - a very unpleasant & debilitating illness.

As a child I was always encouraged to visit those who had "childhood" illnesses.  However, I've only ever had measles (twice) and German measles.  I nursed my husband and daughter when they caught chicken pox, and we'd all been in contact with the same "donor".  But then, we're all different, aren't we?
