A 27 year old man in Queensland has died from diptheria contracted within Australia. There is concern that lack of immunisation is resulting in an increase in diphtheria cases.
Q&A: found out that a close family members children are not immunized. They have been overseas and have all been seriously ill since returning home from their trip. I have two little ones and my youngest is not old enough to have had all his immunizations yet. We have seen them since they’ve been home and the children have played together. I am really quite upset and angry that we weren’t told about this and I am not comfortable seeing them until my youngest has had all of his immunizations. I’m not sure how to go about talking with them about it, really not keen on starting a family feud but I really feel like I should say something. Any suggestions would be fantastic
