I'm concerned about children that aren't being vaccinated against the measles. The parents don't stop and realize the danger that measles can be. Back in the '50s, when I was a year old, I got the measles. (This was back in the days before the measles vaccine.) Before I recovered, I got pneumonia.

My mother called the doctor. He made a house call (they still did that back in those days). He gave me a shot of penicillin. The doctor told my mother that I had almost died. Do parents want that to happen to their children? Please get them immunized.
