John Leddy was all set to send his 2-year-old daughter Vanessa to the YWCA Family Cooperative Preschool in Santa Monica recently when he and his wife decided at the last minute to ask about its measles vaccination rate.

They went onto the state’s website and were alarmed to learn that as of last fall, only 51% of the preschool’s children were vaccinated against the measles.
