chicken pox and whooping cough are mostly just inconvenient. The reason unvaccinated children get them more often has a lot to do with the fact that the parent wants them to get it so that they don't get it when the are older. Vaccines are not a panacea either. Its odd that people treat these things as though they are not normal. It is perfectly normal to get these diseases some you just wouldn't want to get at certain times in life. (Such as when a woman is pregnant).
