Is there an actual published study some where showing the rate of pertussis among those immunized against it? I can't seem to find it on this website. How is "immunized against pertussis" defined? My sister was immunized against pertussis. She got the last dose at age 5 and now she's 46. It would be more helpful to know if a large number of people immunized within the past 5 years and 10 years are now getting pertussis. How serious are these cases? Are we sure they are contageous? As it is these findings raise concerns, but without a definition of "fully vaccinated" the findings are fairly useless.
