While the risk of these negative side effects is considered extremely low, parents can cut their child’s risk even further by vaccinating them at 12 to 15 months of age instead of waiting until their child is 16 to 23...

Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.

Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
