Following up on my recent chicken pox vaccine post:

The number of babies who died in the entire United States in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 with varicella as the underlying cause was zero.

Remember, we don’t even vaccinate kids younger than one, so any benefits they are seeing are from herd immunity. This is an aspect of immunization which is discussed too rarely. You don’t just vaccinate your kids to protect them; you vaccinate them to protect all children. And when other children get vaccinated, they are protecting yours. 

Vaccinate your kids.
