A note on chicken pox

I apologize for any confusion which may have occurred as a result of my editing error in my recent Other Voices article, “What a Personal Belief Exemption Means for Public Health.” Chicken pox was incorrectly referred to as pertussis, rather than correctly as varicella. I would also like to thank The Union for the opportunity to highlight the importance of immunizing our county’s children against vaccine preventable diseases.
