Re: México has one of the most complete vaccination schemes in the world

We went to our local county health department for some vaccinations before our trip to Africa. The nurse said that our county had that highest incidence of whooping cough in WA state. I asked if it was due to our large Mexican immigrant population, and she said absolutely not. . . they were the first ones wanting to be vaccinated because they have seen the actual results of many of the diseases that protection was being offered for. She said that many of the Eastern European immigrants were reluctant to be vaccinated due to distrust of the health systems in their home countries.
