    The funny thing is the cdc released a statement that the whopping cough vaccine may be actually be spreading it. Which is weird because It's supposed to be a non-live vaccine.

    So it could have been spread by a vaccinated child or adult

    I don't understand if the vaccines work, it should be no fear. If they don't work, why vax.

    80% of the pertussis cases were linked to vaccinated children.

    Please educate yourself. I vaccinate my kids and even I know that the outbreak was link to adults shedding the vaccine. So please go read up on it then come back with an actual smart post

    It wasn't just adults but kids in the 12-13 age range as well, it is believed the vaccine begins to wane by that age.
