by Mary Alexander




Mary Alexander's daughter Florence was a healthy two-year-old until 36 hours after her Meningitis C vaccination, when she suffered the first of many terrifying convulsions. Here, mixing personal experience with factual research, Alexander examines the status quo of vaccination and highlights some of the questions she believes should be at the forefront of parents' minds: how can trust in vaccination be restored?; are parents' expectations of success too high in this medically advanced world?; are all vaccinations necessary? This book aims to provide parents with the knowledge and curiosity needed to make an informed, confident decision about vaccination.

Mary Alexander has two children; Jacob aged six and Florence, now aged four.
