    My DD's both got it 2 months after their immunisations. I have never seen them so sick.
    It was awful, soaring temps, lethargic and floppy and just so lifeless.
    Wouldn't wish it upon anyone.

    Also we live rural NSW, no other reported outbreaks.

    It was terrible! Especially with them only being about 14 months old at the time. We just had to focus on keeping them hydrated as they weren't interested in food or drinks. They started getting better after about 10 days but had the spots for almost 2 weeks after.
    I'll see if I can find a pic...

    That is completely untrue. Sorry - but last time I check one in 5 people who caught a cold did not end up in hospital. I know your stance on vaxxes, but we aren't even talking about vaxxes, we are talking about a potentially fatal diseases that has an extremely high rate of secondary complications.

    I contracted the disease as a child and nearly died.
