For the past decade, Americans have been subjected to dire warnings that B. pertussis whooping cough cases are on the rise and it is the fault of parents who don’t vaccinate their children. That myth actually goes back to the early 1980’s, 4 when parents of DPT vaccine injured children in the U.S. were asking for a safer pertussis vaccine while, at the same time, discovering that whole cell pertussis vaccine in DPT shots did not prevent infection 5 and vaccine immunity lasted for only two to five years.
The same old excuse – “it’s the parent’s fault” – is being invoked again in the 21st century by forced vaccination proponents who want to eliminate vaccine exemptions, just as another generation of parents are discovering that acellular pertussis vaccine in DTaP shots also does not prevent infection and vaccine immunity is waning, lasting at best for two to five years.
