When I was a toddler, my parents nearly died of the mumps, which is quite serious in adults. I’m old enough to remember when parents lived in fear that their children would catch whooping cough and other diseases that, because of vaccinations, have become no longer a worry–at least, not until the recent anti-vax fraud and the hysterical fools who fell for it.

California is in the throes of a whooping cough epidemic, state health department officials announced Friday.

Dr. Ron Chapman, director of the California Department of Public Health, said 3,458 cases of whooping cough have been reported since Jan. 1 — including 800 in the past two weeks. That total is more than all the cases reported in 2013.

I trust that Jenny McCarthy and her ilk are happy about the harm they have done.
