Can skeptical parents be persuaded to vaccinate? 

24 Jul

The beloved novelist and children’s author Roald Dahl once wrote an open letter describing how his daughter Olivia suffered from measles when she was 7 years old. Olivia seemed to be recovering, Dahl wrote, and he was sitting on her bed, teaching her how to build animals out of pipe cleaners, when he noticed that she had trouble coordinating her fingers’ movements.

“‘Are you feeling all right?’ I asked her.”

“‘I feel all sleepy,’ she said.”
