A beautifully illustrated book promoting a positive message about vaccination to children (aged 4-10), highlighting the resilience and impact of a vaccine-preventable disease and the bravery required to protect ourselves and those most vulnerable among us.The Measly Virus is dedicated to Riley Hughes, a four-week-old baby who tragically died on 17th March 2015 as a result of contracting Pertussis (Whooping Cough). To honour Riley’s memory, part-proceeds from all book sales will go toward supporting Pertussis research and vaccination initiatives at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Perth, Western Australia.
