Letter to the Editor - July 22: Still an element of risk

IT IS important for people like Jean Reid (A voice against vaccination, July 15) to realise that no medical/dental procedure is without some element of risk.

Life is full of risk. It is tragic that sometimes the outcome is not as we would like, but that is no reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

Vaccination program has been largely responsible for the reduction in infant mortality.
