Immunisation advocate Cecily Johnson takes a photo of her daughter Laine and her death certificate to anti-vaccination meetings to fight their message that “immunisation harms” after Laine lost her life to complications from measles.
Laine should have turned 30 last week, but she passed away in 1995 from subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, an infection related to the measles that left her blind and unable to walk or talk.
It took seven years for the complications from measles to manifest but this is a point that is NOT stressed by anti-vax “facts”. They frequently advocate that measles and other vaccination-preventable diseases are not that bad.
