New immunisation resource for children

The Mexican Virology Network was founded in 2015 with the aims of promoting research into virus detection and treatment. To reflect their keen interest in communicating facts about diseases and prevention, they have created a new children's book outlining the importance of vaccination. "Paul has Measles" hopes to teach children, their parents and their teachers how important it is to prevent infectious diseases. It has been translated into many languages in an effort to reach the broader population. To view the English version, please click on the link below
