Dear Mrs Chattering-Class
I am sorry to hear that there was no MMR vaccine at your GP’s surgery when you took little Jocasta on Monday afternoon and yes I am aware that there is a measles epidemic, everyone in the PCT is aware of it.
When I investigated your complaint, your GP informed me that Jocasta is five years old and that you have consistantly refused to have her vaccinated until now. I understand that in the past you have accused Dr Smith and all her staff of being part of a Big Pharma/Government conspiracy to suppress the truth about MMR and autism.
While I am relieved that you have finally seen sense and realised that, being unvaccinated, Jocasta is much more likely to catch measles than her vaccinated friends I feel that I should point out that it is the selfish behaviour of people like you that has caused this epidemic in the first place by not having your children vaccinated.
You are not the only over-vocal, undereducated parent who has suddenly realised the danger in which your wilful ignorance has placed your child, consequently there has been a sudden upsurge in demand for vaccinations, hence the shortage at your GP’s surgery.
You are reaping what you have sown.
