    Melissa, none of the argument and discussion has touched on what seems to be the central issue in management of post-vaccination effects, that is, fever.
    I’ve just read the article in The Weekend Australian Magazine and that mentions, just once, a measurement of the temperature of an ill child.
    I reckon there needs to be a round-table on this, with all the cards on the table. For one, I cannot see that vaccine manufacturers have overlooked interventions that would prevent catastrophic febrile convulsions.
    There is a benchmark. When a couple of my family took part in trial of a new meningo vaccine, the parents were given digital thermometers to record 4-hourly temps.
    Education of parents is the key issue, but what is the existing knowledge base? Has anyone polled parents for their understanding of ‘fever’?
