Afraid to go to the center for free vaccination

Last month, there was a volunteer from the center roaming around the village for the free MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) Vaccine.  This is a vaccination to protect the children from three separate illnesses such as the measles, mumps, and rubella in a single injection.  And this is recommended for all children.  If you go to the private clinic this vaccination is a bit expensive, not all can afford especially to those belongs to the poverty line.  That is why this free vaccination is given to everyone, especially to less fortunate ones.  I went to the center and grabbed this free vaccination for my 1-year-old niece and 5 years old nephew.

However, because of the dengvaxia vaccine issue, some parents did not go and preferred to stay at home.  They are scared that something might bad happened to their children.  They thought that the free vaccination from the government is not safe and will kill and harm their children.  We can’t blame them because they just want the safety of their children.  I do hope that the government especially the city health will do something about it.  To let the parents know the importance of this vaccination to their kids.  And that this is a safety vaccination.  So that the parents will not be afraid to go to have free vaccination at the center.
