What officials are not saying is that pertussis (whooping cough) outbreasks are cyclical and tend to peak every two to five years, regardless of the vaccination rate. Once again, this is a created hysteria to capitalize on fears of frightened parents and an opportunity to push vaccination on a trusting, underinformed publicPertussis is most worrisome in children less than 3 months of age due to the small size of windpipe. As with any infection, the youngest children are at greatest risk of serious illness and rarely, death. IImportantly, pertussis is not always serious and rarely is it as 'deadly' as the pro-vaccine doctors and the evening news would have you believe. The hallmark of pertussis is a persistent cough which is frequently diagnosed and treated as "bronchitis". Unless you or (your children are SPECIFICALLY tested for pertussis with a nasal or throat swab, you may have had it and not known! Your child can be fully vaccinated and still contract pertussisThree vaccines are administered for whooping cough, from 2 to 6 months of age. Problems caused by the DTaP (pertussis) vaccines are real. If you search the VAERS database, you will see THOUSANDS of reports of children who were severely injured or died from the vaccine. Please do your research DO NOT relay on our Gov't to provide us with the truth!
