Remembering the past to protect the future

The aim of the Piercing Memories project was to record personal accounts and experiences of diseases that are now vaccine preventable in New Zealand.

Nearly 200 stories from all around New Zealand were recorded and used to demonstrate to parents and health professionals the reality of diseases that can now be prevented by immunisation.

The following stories are edited from recorded stories for the Piercing Memories project and are posted on this website with the consent of the author.
