    Whooping cough

    As I have been attending Amish auctions this spring I only saw one location where the PA Dept of Health was offering immunizations. That was near Danville, Pa (Beaver Run). RMM and tetanus shot were being offered. A few years ago a group from Perry County went to Haiti to help rebuild and they brought back measles. I was recently told they have had no cases in the last two years.

    Not surprising.

    In this area, 3 students at a nearby town’s high school have contracted mumps. I’m sure with summer vacation beginning, there will be more diseases spreading throughout the country…and beyond. Too bad so many (English & Amish) don’t understand that their refusal (or ignorance) to vaccinate can adversely affect “innocent bystanders” and not JUST themselves & their children. People with compromised immune systems (cancer patients having chemo/radiation, for example), infants, etc., can have their lives threatened by preventable diseases they catch from non-vaccinated individuals.
