Vax movies in clinics

I believe that one of the reasons parents object to vaccination is that nowadays they have never seen a child in a full-blown attack of the relevant illnesses.

Re Dr Gannon’s article on vaccination in Australian Medicine (March 19, 2018 p3 Vigilance on vaccinations and the vacuous). I believe that one of the reasons parents object to vaccination is that nowadays they have never seen a child in a full-blown attack of the relevant illnesses. I have long thought that one approach to overcoming the problem would be to have movies available at our health centres depicting these illnesses, which could be shown to parents and others as needed. I am unsure if something similar is available on the internet.
