Roald Dahl’s devastating anti-vaxxer takedown is even more relevant today than it was then

There’s no better day than Roald Dahl Day – it would have been the great man’s 103rd birthday today – to remember his anti-vaxxer takedown which is even more relevant today than it was when he wrote it back in the 1980s.

Along with all his brilliant books such as Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the BFG, and Matilda, he also wrote a collection of essays on public health and safety.

Here’s what he said about the issue of vaccination and parents who choose not to vaccinate their children.

A heartbreaking story from an extraordinary man which should be read any anyone who has any doubts about vaccination.
