Ok I promise not to turn this blog SOLELY into a vaccination campaign...BUT...today the CBC reported a whooping cough outbreak in the west Kootenay region of BC, Canada. That area of BC's interior has the lowest vaccination rate by the way, not a coincidence.
I say it is timely as I just did a post a few days ago on Andrew Wakefield and his contribution to worldwide lows in immunization rates.
All 19 cases in BC were on un-immunized children.
I had an aunt that died at age 2 of whooping cough and a grandfather that was on the team of physicians who brought the first iron lung to Canada.
So I take vaccinations a little more personally that I ought to perhaps...
