In another big blow to believers in vaccination, Davie County in North Carolina has reported an outbreak of Pertussis – commonly called whooping cough – among vaccinated students at two schools in the county.
Fox News reported on Friday that 100 percent of the confirmed whooping cough cases in the two schools are vaccinated:
The spread of whooping cough is most easily prevented by receiving the DTaP shot. However – and this is particularly troubling – all 13 of the people confirmed to have Pertussis had gotten the vaccine.
The students, who are on vacation now, are considered a threat to the healthy others in their families or community as the disease is highly contagious. Worse, the vaccine has entirely failed to protect them, despite the claims of vaccine effectiveness, and if it failed to protect them, there is no reason to assume it would protect others who get in touch with them.
A couple of months ago, New Brunswick in Canada and Lincoln-Lancaster County, Nebraska, in United States both reported outbreaks of whooping cough, and most of the patients were those already vaccinated.
