CDC: Whooping cough rising at alarming rate in US; this could prove the worst year since 1959 - The Washington Post

Scary thing is, unvaccinated children are getting the disease which shows the importance of herd immunity.

Whooping cough can kill, espeically those under a year old. It can also cause mental retardation from lack of oxygen from coughing. When my mother was a child, she knew three kids on her street that died from the disease. If there was a polio outbreak, no one was allowed to go to the park.
