To the editor:
Why is it necessary to receive the measles vaccine? When I was just 8 months old, I had German measles and pneumonia at the same time and my temperature shot up to about 104 degrees. Doctors and others were unable to bring it down within a reasonable amount of time. The results were that it scarred the tissues in the back of my eyes, which left me with loss of vision.
When I was about 3, my parents started taking me to eye doctors all over North Carolina, including McPherson’s in Durham, without any results or answers.
