Pertussis epidemic declared in California

There have been well over 900 cases of pertussis in California this year (and 600 more suspected cases are being investigated) four times higher than last year. And we’re only halfway through the year. If it keeps up at this rate, there will be more California cases of pertussis in 2010 than in the last 50 years combined. There have also been five deaths from this easily preventable disease in California this year, up from zero last year and all of which were infants below the age of three months.

Hmm, I wonder what’s suddenly changed? Oh yeah, right. Jenny McCarthy, Mr. Andy Wakefield, and their band of idiots spreading lies about vaccines…you know, to protect the children. I wonder how they’ll respond to these deaths. Probably the same way they respond to all previous deaths they helped cause, by pretending it didn’t happen.
