DT Friday Freakout: Whooping Cough Edition

There's only one headline that freaks me out this week, and it includes the words, "Whooping Cough Epidemic."

California has declared a pertussis epidemic, with 3,458 cases reported since the beginning of the 2014, more than in all of 2013.

It's also way more than the number of autism cases which have been prevented by large clusters of parents refusing to have their kids vaccinated: WHICH IS ZERO.

The CDC is reporting a 24% increase in pertussis cases nationally. Get your immunization and boosters, people and little people.
