Unsurprising

Unvaccinated children are 23 times more likely to get whooping cough.

75% of infants under the age of six months that get whooping cough have to be hospitalized.  The whooping cough vaccine is administered from two to eighteen months in five doses, but isn't considered fully into effect until the vaccination schedule has been completed.  Whooping cough is highly contagious.

So, idiots who choose to let your little germ factories run around spewing bacteria all over everyone they come in contact with, think about the infants you're hospitalizing.  Think about someone other than yourself and your family and your personal need to be oh-so-different and cutting-edge and rejecting of conventional wisdom.
