Well, you need a shot of reality, here goes:
4 months ago my grand-daughters had their combo vaccine which included the Whooping Cough vaccine.
1 1/2 weeks later the twins fell sick and the doctor upon seeing them thought it was just a viral bug, no worries.
1 week later my son, who is 30 years old got "the bug".
He went into the doctor and the doctor said, "Whooping Cough" even though he had been vaccinated for Whooping Cough as a child. My son told the
doctor about his twin girls being sick and his doctor said to have the twin's doctor recheck them.
Twins were rechecked and sure enough had "Whooping Cough"
By this point I had the bug and my son's doctor treated me for "Whooping Cough" even though I had been vaccinated as a child.
We were visited by the City of Austin Health Dept who made sure that all of our family and any visiting friends and my grandson's school were all
notified and that all who had been around any of us were treated with a Z pack of antibiotics.
We live in a very nice area, very nice homes, the twins aren't in large crowds or anything like that. They are cared for at home by their other
grandmother, who btw was also vaccinated.
Hmmmmmmm, I wonder what gave the twins "Whooping Cough"? Could it be that quality control is lacking at the plants who produce the vaccines,
occasionally allowing live bacterium into the mix instead of dead bacterium? That was the discussion I had with the City Health and they said that
they were not allowed to report possible bad batches, that that was the CDC domain, but they felt that many of the current outbreaks could be
attributed to that but the way the system is set up their hands were tied. They did acknowledge that they noticed that many of the households that
have been hit with this illness usually had a child who had recently been vaccinated in it.
Also, it turns out that all you adults out there need to go in and ge re-vaccinated 'cause evidently they wear off over time. I double dog dare you
pro vaccine people to go in and do the right thing and get your shots, 'kay?
So, in my opinion your post is totally ignorant of the true situation.
