Pertussis: The Outbreaks that Cry Wolf…

Pertussis, Pertussis, Pertussis….

Also commonly known as Whooping Cough.
And always associated with Outbreaks.
Or the commercials where they show a baby coughing to death.

This is usually how it goes… First the word Pertussis.
Followed by the word Outbreaks. Or a story of a baby dying.
Then Scare tactics.
Which always leads to Fear.
Which is always solved by the word Vaccines.
Which is secured by the word Boosters.
Then more Boosters.

Did I just say the word Boosters 7 times? Yes, that’s right. That’s how many booster shots are required for a child entering the 7th grade in California.
Really? 7 booster shots.

When will the vaccine ever work?


ARTICLE #1:  Title: “A cluster of suspected whooping cough cases in Colorado was actually most likely a “pseudo-outbreak,”according to an investigation by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)”

1. The patients were mistakenly diagnosed because of contaminated samples.
2.  The samples were contaminated from the pertussis DNA in the vaccine.
3. They tested more patients than necessary, leading to more mistaken diagnoses.
4. Many of the people they found infected with pertussis were vaccinated.
5. They still recommend the vaccine.

ARTICLE #2: Whooping Cough Epidemic In Washington State Exposes Vaccination Problems:

“We started dissecting the data. What was very surprising was the majority of cases were in fully vaccinated children.  That’s what started catching our attention.”

ARTICLE #3: Vaccine failure admitted: Whooping cough outbreaks higher among children already vaccinated

ARTICLE #4: Whooping Cough Vaccine – Doesn’t Work – GSK Says “We Never Bothered to Check”

ARTICLE #5:  92% of pertussis cases in California were in vaccinated individuals – Read the fine print, the vaccine doesn’t work.

ARTICLE #6Whooping Cough Spreads Mainly through Vaccinated Populations

I love Dr. Palevsky’s (board-certified pediatrician). His wisdom  & expertise on pertussis can be summed up quite nicely with his article called: The False Alarm on Pertussis Outbreaks.  

He goes through a check list of questions:

Do pertussis vaccines prevent children and adults from breathing in pertussis bacteria from the air?

Do children vaccinated with the pertussis vaccine somehow stop carrying pertussis bacteria in their airways simply because they’ve been vaccinated?

Do pertussis vaccines stop vaccinated children from transmitting the pertussis bacteria to other people?

Do pertussis bacteria disappear from society once vaccination rates are high?
Vaccination rates for pertussis have no impact on whether the pertussis bacteria are in the air or not, or whether or not we breathe them in. The presence of the pertussis bacteria, and the exposure to them, are in no way affected by vaccination status or vaccination rates.

Do unvaccinated children, because they are unvaccinated, carry the bacteria in their airways, which vaccinated children are somehow no longer believed to be carrying because they’ve been vaccinated?

Do unvaccinated children transmit the pertussis bacteria to other children by the mere fact that they are not vaccinated?
Air is air. Air is free to breathe. We breathe in whatever is in the air. And, vaccinated and unvaccinated children are equally exposed to breathing in pertussis bacteria. Anyone who poses as science the idea that unvaccinated children pose a threat to the population because they are unvaccinated and are more likely to transmit a disease to the rest of the population, is misleading you, promulgating myth, and inaccurate. Vaccination with the pertussis vaccine does not exonerate anyone from carrying the pertussis bacteria, or prevent them from being exposed to the bacteria.

Dr. Palevsky’s checklist is a lot longer than this. But you get the point. Read the link provided above for the full check-list and article. It’s pretty eye-opening.

A lot of what I read is eye-opening.
I recently read a letter written to Australian parliament, concerning the Pertussis vaccine. I’ll share the link below. Let me first paraphrase the main points:

  • The majority of children who get whooping cough, are vaccinated.
  • The majority of babies who get whooping cough are suffering because their mothers were vaccinated.
  • The numbers getting whooping cough hasn’t reduced since the vaccine was introduced.
  • Immunity is faulty.

It’s so simple to understand. Yet so hard to admit.

When will Greed stop winning?
Will money always buy out truth?

Vaccinated people re-exposed to whooping cough, respond to it, in the way in which their immune system is pre-programmed, resulting in those people not clearing the pertussis bacteria fast (as happens after natural immunity), and they become ready carriers and spreaders of whooping cough”

“The aberrant immunity created by the vaccine, creates a situation whereby the vaccinated are now the most effective spreaders of the disease. The ones whose first attack was natural, are not likely to spread the disease, since their bronchials clear any reinfection bacteria very quickly. Again, this is all in medical literature”

A CDC study suggests that the resurgence of WHOOPING COUGH is due to the vaccine causing an increased and more virulent toxin. The CDC acknowledges that whooping cough is recurring in highly vaccinated populations. They also concluded that there is a high secondary transmission rate from vaccinated individuals.

The CDC ended the study with: “Vaccinated adolescents and adults may serve as reservoirs for silent infection and become potential transmitters to unprotected infants. Therefore, even young, recently vaccinated children may serve as reservoirs and potential transmitters of infection.”

A Special Report done by the International Medical Council on Vaccination:
“If you think that a vaccinated person cannot get whooping cough, in the most severe manner, think again. Most babies over the age of 6 months who get whooping cough are fully and “appropriately” vaccinated. Pertussis is admittedly, even by the vaccine enthusiasts, primarily spread by vaccinated children, adolescents and adults” 

Dr. Mercola has a great article called:
Why Whooping Cough Cannot be Prevented, Despite Near 100 Percent Vaccination Rates

Let’s look at some of the most well-known “outbreaks” over the last 20 years (keep in mind the pertussis vaccine rate has been at an all time high of 98% during these outbreaks.) That means 98% of the population is vaccinated. You know the whole “herd immunity” argument. Yeah, well the herd is immune. So why aren’t they being protected?

1986: Kansas Outbreak: 90% of cases were vaccinated
1993: Ohio Outbreak: 82% of cases were vaccinated
1996: Vermont Outbreak: 74% of cases were vaccinated
2003: Cyprus Outbreak: 79% of cases were vaccinated.
2010: California Outbreak: 92% of cases were vaccinated.
Everyone who contracted the disease had received 3 to 5 doses of the vaccine.

1994 article in the New England Journal of Medicine, showed that 80% of children under 5 who got pertussis had been fully vaccinated. The researchers concluded that the “vaccine offered insufficient protection from the disease”

When television programs attacked the pertussis vaccine, the Maryland Health Department deceived the public by blaming a recent epidemic of whooping cough on the impact of these shows. However, when the former top virologist of the U.S. Division of Biological Standards, Dr. J. Anthony Morris, analyzed the original data provided by the Immunization Program Coordinator, he concluded the Maryland “epidemic” didn’t exist. In only five of the 41 cases was there sufficient evidence to correctly diagnose whooping cough. And of these cases, each child had received from one to four doses of the pertussis vaccine.

Summer 2010, we experienced a whooping cough “outbreak” in Southern California. Health officials and media did a great job trying to scare us with headlines such as “California whooping cough outbreak largest in decades”. And they worked overtime to  try to push more boosters (evidence a year later in 2011, when they added the 7th booster shot). They really want us to believe that the reason the outbreaks are happening is because of the unvaccinated. During this time, the National Vaccine Information Centers face book page was filled with post after post by parents sharing that their fully vaccinated children had whooping cough that summer. In the end, this was an outbreak of the vaccinated. 92% of pertussis cases in California were in vaccinated individuals – Reuters Health

Big Surprise: Whooping Cough Spreads Mainly Through Vaccinated Populations

Here is another collection of mainstream news reports and studies exploding the whooping cough vaccine myth and outbreaks (HERE)

But that’s a whole different history lesson in itself. I highly recommend going back in history and researching this vaccine from introduction to present time.

The Vaccine Safety Manual, written by Neil Z. Miller cites over 180 references for the chapter on pertussis. All published studies in medical literature, showing the ineffectiveness of this vaccine and the dangers. It also chronicles the entire history of pertussis, showing how the vaccine was never the reason for decline in this disease.

When it comes to vaccines: I often hear the phrase “Benefits vs. Risks”
Let me make this assessment as simple as I can:
BENEFIT: The pertussis vaccine doesn’t work. It never has. It never will.
RISK: The majority off the $2 BILLION dollars that our government has awarded to vaccine injured children, has been from this vaccine (DTaP, DPT).
It’s not hard to see why. The vaccine package insert clearly states: “Adverse events reported during post-approval use of DTaP vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting”

Knowledge is Power! Go get some!

P.S. How is my Granny still alive and going strong? She only received 1 pertussis vaccine. Ever. And that was like 80 years ago. Seriously. My Granny is 84. How is she surviving all these whooping cough outbreaks?

  1. Wow! I just found your site and this is an amazing article. Thank you for all of this research with the sources included- very professional. This is just one more confirmation from God that we are doing the right thing for our children by not vaccinating them. (among other things of course) I only wish I could take back the few that my firstborn received! Thank you for being a blessing of encouragement to me!


  2. Thanks for sharing, I’ m stressed right now due to getting some letters from school about pertussis and in case there is an outbreak I need to sign stating my child is susceptible to the disease. Any help I can get is appreciated.


  3. Great compilation of evidence! Thank you. Can you post a link to the package insert with the statement you quoted at the end? I wasn’t able to find it. I’m needing it for a discussion with a skeptic who clearly needs evidence from “the horses mouth.”


    1. Google: vaccine package inserts. Many different organizations link to all vaccine package inserts.

      Here is exact link to DTaP insert. Page 11

      “Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS,
      anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence
      and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting”


  4. I am an animal herbalist. Appreciate your information. I research all my findings too. I live in Windsor which was an auto town. The Big 3 were where most folks worked and the doctor box they are in is unbelievable. That wonderful prescription plan they get that used to be 25 cents lol. Believe they’ve increased it but not much doesn’t help either. My daughter teaches Autistic children. Graduating from Wayne State with a Masters in this I was helping edit her paper. Wayne State is known for its medical program and the research on vaccines was discussed for 5 minutes with what knows what study probably an independent one. Of course they were told this not a problem but from my research I know vaccines are responsible for many childhood and adult health issues. Thank you for your info. Keep me updated. I have a lot of people I rely on and you are definately speaking our language. Nutrition. Holy mackerel. People just don’t get it. Of all the things we can do as parents and pet owners it’s to read labels and know what the heck you’re putting in your mouth. I’m sickened at people’s food carts in the grocery store. The cashiers always comment on my cart. Young athletes in particular in the know say I wish you were my mom. Have a great weekend
