What’s Really to Blame for California’s Whooping Cough Epidemic?

Posted By Dr. Mercola January 07 2011

In 2010, nearly 1,000 adults and children have tested positive for whooping cough -- and more than half of them had been vaccinated. An investigation by California news agencies and watchdog organizations is raising serious concerns about whether the whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine is actually working.

In the links below, you will learn just how often the vaccine fails and start to understand how vaccinated people are actually spreading the disease.

Whooping Cough Cases Increase Despite High Vaccination Rates

As Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccine Information Center, reported:
"Even with super high pertussis vaccine coverage in America and other countries like the Netherlands, Australia, Finland and Canada, whooping cough disease cannot be prevented. Every several years a new outbreak is reported.

Why?

First, pertussis vaccines widely used since the 1950's have not prevented whooping cough disease from circulating in vaccinated populations. Unknown numbers of children and adults, who have gotten all government recommended pertussis shots, can and do develop whooping cough or are carriers without symptoms.

Because pertussis vaccine immunity is only temporary and does not last, health officials are now telling teenagers and adults to get more booster shots.

A second reason is that another Bordetella organism – parapertussis – also can cause whooping cough. B. parapertussis symptoms, while often milder, can look exactly like B. pertussis. But doctors rarely recognize or test for parapertussis. And there is NO vaccine for parapertussis.

The DTaP vaccine does not protect. Thus, whooping cough outbreaks and deaths cannot be blamed on parents choosing not to vaccinate their children. The older DPT and newer DTaP vaccines have simply never been very effective.

Whooping Cough Manufacturers Fund “Expert” Groups on Vaccine Policy

This includes the Global Pertussis Initiative, which includes 35 medical experts from 16 countries, and the International Consensus Group on Pertussis Immunization. Research from members of the Global Pertussis Initiative is widely cited and has been used for setting vaccination schedules and publicizing health guidelines in countries around the world, including the United States.

Whooping Cough Vaccine Risks You Should Know

As Barbara Loe Fisher states:
"Of all the vaccines which have been routinely used by children in the past century, the brain damaging effects of the pertussis (whooping cough) portion of DPT vaccine is among the most well documented in the scientific literature.

Here are numerous personal accounts from families of children who died or became seriously ill following the DPT vaccine in this transcript of a 1986 meeting of the Immunization Practices Advisory Committee. This was shortly after a similar whooping cough outbreak in 1985, during which most of the media also blamed the outbreak on parents of unvaccinated kids.
I recommend Barbara Loe Fisher's book DPT: A Shot in the Dark, the first major, well documented critique of America's mass vaccination system.

The DTaP vaccine, this shot has been linked to:
  • Fever, including high fever over 105 degrees F
  • Seizure
  • Non-stop crying
  • Serious allergic reaction
  • Permanent brain damage
  • Coma
  • Swelling of the entire arm or leg where the shot was given
Get the Facts Straight Before You Vaccinate

Whooping cough is still infecting both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals, and cases increase every four to five years no matter how high the vaccination rate. Many, if not most, children and adults survive whooping cough without any complications whatsoever, but some do not.
