Kristen Bell, who voiced Anna in the Disney film Frozen, and who is married to Punk’d star Dax Shepard, is telling her friends if they don’t get immunized, they can’t hold her baby.
The mother of two says there was a whooping cough outbreak when one of her daughters was less than two months old and so she told her friends, “You have to get a whooping cough vaccination if you are going to hold our baby.”
"It's a very simple logic: I believe in trusting doctors, not know-it-alls," Kristen says.
Whooping cough, or pertussis, is very contagious bacterial infection of the lining of the respiratory tract (breathing tubes). It is known as whooping cough because of the "whooping" sound that people make when gasping for air after a fit of coughing.
