There is a glaring piece of missing data here and that is the number of folks that have not been vaccinated against this very avoidable disease. If this number said to be around 800 if for those that have wanted to be natural and avoid vaccinations then there is the missing data. If this represents those that think that vaccinations cause autism then this is the result of shear stupidity. If this is the result of non-vaccinated illegal aliens that frequently do not receive medical care before coming to the US, then this is another possible piece of missing information.

I wonder if those who are vaccinated are still at risk? I agree with you Bill. It would be nice to know how many cases reported are from prople who are unvaccinated.

Vaccinations are not 100% effective against whooping cough. I understand that all of us that have vaccines should get a booster because of this outbreak in our area. There has been at least one confirmed case recently at Monte Vista High School. The principal sent a message to all parents to watch for symptoms in our children. Very concerning!
