Which country does not have the acellular?  As a mother of 2 young 
children I can tell you that both received the acellular vaccine in the 
U.S., and neither had any serious actions, and living in NYC, the threat 
of catching the disease is not insignificant.  BTW, part of the decrease 
in incidence is due to the arrival of vaccines, re the smallpox vaccine 
that made NIH the only source of the bug.
