A teenager who lost her fingers to septicaemia as a toddler has been able to brush her teeth for the first time - after she was fitted with bionic fingers. Chloe, from Swindon, Wiltshire, contracted streptococcal septicaemia after being struck down with chicken pox aged three-and-a-half.

It’s, of course, wonderful to see medicine and technology progress like this. Fortunately, the children of today, as long as they are vaccinated for chickenpox, won’t ever have to worry about amputations secondary to chickenpox complications. We’ve essentially eliminated that risk.
Also, a massive study published just a few days ago, analyzed over 1,000 vaccine studies to determine that immunizations are extraordinarily safe and there is absolutely no link at all between the MMR vaccine and autism.
