Australian Anti-vaccination activist's 11 week old daughter hospitalised for whooping cough (opens new window), which kills 1 in 200 children who pick up the infection.

It appears from Facebook posts that she has no intention of vaccinating her kid, and promised to visit GP just to be able to get out of hospital.

Others of Facebook have suggested she try high dose vitamin C or homeopathy as alternatives to vaccination.

Sadly, Whooping Cough rates are at an all time high in SA (opens new window).
