If you have any doubts at all as to why having strong, effective vaccines administered to as many people as possible is a moral imperative, read this post at Lifenut to clear them up.  Fortunately, this isn’t one of the worst cases – Gretchen’s kid is on the mend.  Imagine how much cheaper this would have been, both from a financial and an emotional standpoint, if the anti-vax twits weren’t influencing the ignorant to allow diseases like pertussis to rise again.

Before you start screeching that Gretchen wouldn’t have this problem if she’d had her son vaccinated, read the whole thing – her son had an adverse reaction to the vaccination as a baby, and wasn’t vaccinated again.  This is why herd immunity is so so important to establish, both for the people among us who can’t be vaccinated, and for the infants who are too young to be vaccinated.

(I didn’t include the obvious profanity in the title because Lifenut is a family-friendly blog and I don’t know if trackbacks show up in the comments.  The author is a longtime commenter at the HQ, but if you go over there try to be civil, you fucking hooligans.)

    I’ve been meaning to look up the total non-vaccination deaths to compare to school shooting deaths.

    We wiped this out in the USA, but I caught it about 5 years go, worst cough ever! Odd to have contracted it in Katy TX, one of the biggest sanctuary cities around…probably from the McDonalds when you really need to speak spanish to order coffee – yeah, that bad.

    Howdy! This post couldn’t be written much better! Looking at this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He continually kept preaching about this. I will send this information to him. Pretty sure he’s going to
    have a very good read. Many thanks for sharing!
