But then I read in the newspaper that more and more parents pay less attention to the health of their children. Vaccinating their children against mumps, measles rubella, polio, whooping cough and other diseases covered by the national vaccination program leaves more and more to be desired. Those diseases are not included in that vaccination program for nothing. For example, getting measles can be fatal. Not to mention when a child catches the terrible disease polio because of a missed vaccination. The song ‘thank you dear parents’ will take on a completely different and sinister connotation! So always have your children vaccinated so that you are not to blame yourself later.
