    Even if they were vaccinated might not of helped... from the CDC (can't remember what Kirk calls them)

    http://www.cdc.gov/pertussis/outbreaks-faqs.html

    Q: How common is whooping cough?

    A: Even with the success of whooping cough vaccines, the disease is still common in the United States. Many cases are not diagnosed and so are not reported. Yet over the past 5 years, between 10,000 and 27,000 cases have been reported each year. Institutional outbreaks of whooping cough, such as those in a daycare center, school or hospital, are common, taking place each year in many states.
    Q: Why is there more whooping cough in some years than others?

    A: Reported cases of whooping cough vary from year to year and tend to peak every 3-5 years. Our last peak year nationally was in 2010 when more than 27,000 cases were reported. This pattern is not completely understood, but that’s why it’s important that everyone get vaccinated. If it weren’t for vaccines, we’d see many more cases of whooping cough.

    Around here it wasn't the unvaccinated crowd causing the outbreak, it was the recent late night immigrants and their third world cooties who brought it and spread it. Gracias.

    Wondering how many Australians travel to or from Washington State in a month..it is an epidemic there. I had it as a kid...winter air and chest packs worked...I find it odd that a bunch of homeopathic remedies are now forgotten.

    Actually, the ones that are getting the whooping cough are the ones that are taking the vaccines.

    I've never gotten a flu shot and I've never had the flu. I know people that have gotten the flu shot and they get the flu.

    Ummm you do know the flu shot is their best guess of what flu is going to happen that season right? And not necessarily what strain actually occurs.

    Also when I worked in a busy store I would get at least two upper respiratory infections a year... shockingly working for myself on a farm in a small town I haven't gotten the flu in years... weird eh.

    Ooops forgot to mention I am running a Christmas tree farm (note that I flock the trees with thermite)... oddly I can only water them with fluoridated water.

    It's hard for flu germs to penetrate the walls of mommy's basement. You're safe from them in there.

    Vaccinations aren't 100% effective, and no scientist has ever claimed that they are. There is always a certain percentage of vaccinations that "don't take" for whatever reason. Which is why it's even more important that a majority of people be vaccinated so that the people for whom vaccination "don't take" are protected by herd immunity...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herd_immunity

    But, thanks to fearmongering retard assholes... like Jenny McCarthy and Alex Jones, and the retarded fools who believe them... like you, vaccination rates are falling and herd immunity is slipping... and we are seeing the predictable, inevitable and sad consequences.

    In other words... we are seeing the real world damage that retards like yourself inflict upon so-sigh-itee.

    Its more like a lot of these vaccines make you sick from the thing you were vaccinating yourself for. As I said I know people that got the flu right after getting the vaccine.

    Vaccines do far more good than harm... FAR MORE.

    Please do try and wrap your puny little mind around that scientific fact.

    Stop believing, in your infinite gullibility, the fearmongering lies of people(Alex Jones) who tell you otherwise. They are causing the real harm... not the vaccines.

    Please, for the billionth time... grow the fuck up and stop believing bullshit and spouting it back just because doing so makes you feel like an enlightened renegade.

    You're not a patriotic rebel... you're just a clueless, immature ass.

    Stop it. Kirk, seriously, never get vaccinated. Against anything. Ever.

    I've also realized that Kirk is the only poster I regularly address by name.

    Oh yeah I'm in real bad health because I don't get flu vaccines. I can't even remember the last time I got sick.

    So you're basically basing your entire opinion on the subject of worldwide vaccination efficacy and usefulness... something that affects 6+ billion human beings throughout the entire world... on a subject sample of exactly one? Just your one single dumb ass?

    Vaccination... the greatest lifesaving medical/scientific achievement ever made by mankind... EVER... you'd throw it all out the window because l'il Kirky Wirky in him mommy's basement never got the flu vaccine and he never had the sniffles?

    Kirk, if you ever wonder why people call you a childish retard... don't. Just accept that they're right.

    If you don't understand what vaccines have done for mankind... here would be another good time for you to crack open a history book.

    You have no idea how much truth he sees from his futon. In the upright position, of course.
