There comes a moment every few months, while I’m flicking through my calendar, that I realise I am, yet again, weeks late organising to have my children vaccinated.
I silently apologise to the herd for once again compromising our collective immunity and pick the phone up to organise an appointment.
There’s plenty of evidence around that suggests the two main reasons parents aren’t immunising their children are related to access issues or because they question the science of vaccination. That is, they either don’t believe vaccines work, or they have issues with the logistics, costs etc involved in getting their children immunised.
I fall into neither of these camps. I’m simply less organised than I need to be.
