Ok, ignore my post with the question about "morbidity in children."  It 
has been pointed out to me that 'morbidity' refers to number of people 
infected.  I was mistaking it for 'mortality.'  However, in my defense I 
have to say that before posting my question I looked the word up in a 
large dictionary.  Random House defines morbidity as "the percentage of 
deaths resulting from any specific disease."  So, you can understand my 
confusion.  Gee, maybe we should we all E-Mail Random House and tell 
them they've got it wrong?  BTW, from a strictly consumer point of view, 
I would not have my kids vaccinated for chicken pox.  Polio, DPT and the 
rest, sure.  But not chicken pox.  I'll go back to lurking now.
