Whooping cough appears to be back, with a vengeance. It is now an epidemic in California. You need to know that it is serious business.

    I was in elementary school when polio vaccine came out. Maybe the anti-vac crowd can bring polio back from the grave, and the nation can also enjoy mumps, measles, and chicken pox like I did.

    I am in California and can attest to the widespread nature of the epidemic. I know of at least half a dozen people who had or have it, including me and my SO. Mine was April/May this year: 6 weeks of not being able to sleep due to coughing in the early part, then from pain in the chest from a probable cracked rib caused by so much coughing.

    I am a generally healthy 30-something – I can understand how bad getting it is for infants and older people.
