In just the first 6 months of 2018, Europe has had a staggering 41,000 cases of measles. This is worse than any other full year in the last decade. It’s almost 8 times the number of cases in 2016 and I dread to think what the count will be by the end of the year.
August is National Immunization Awareness Month (NIAM) in America – an ideal time to learn (or review!) our work in eradicating diseases, and some of the current challenges facing vaccination.
This was not what I expected my next blog post to be about, but I guess that’s life. Last week I was nominated by fellow blogger Dr Ewen Sommerville for the Sunshine Blogger Award. This came as a big surprise to me, as my blog is only 3 months old!
What is the Sunshine Blogger Award?
The award is driven entirely by the community, passed from blogger to blogger in recognition of their inspiring, creative and motivational blogs. Each nominee passes it on to 11 of their favourite bloggers, and round and round it goes. In my opinion, its a great way to give recognition to bloggers who maybe think no one is paying attention.
