Dear Oh Dear ……keep it simple people

An interesting dilemma when families refuse vaccination for some personal or religious beliefs.

If it’s their choice then so be it. If it works out for them and they’re not infected by the measles good one.

If you can’t force them to be vaccinated and despite having the measles they still refuse vaccination what then?

He said there are enough  government workers allocated to handle each specific task required to accommodate the mass vaccination efforts that are ongoing
