Once blamed on unvaccinated children, few today deny the fact that fully vaccinated children are spreading whooping cough as outbreaks continue across the U.S.
One of the latest outbreaks has occurred in North Carolina, where Carteret County health officials have warned parents to be on the lookout for whooping cough.
Kim Davis, the Nursing Director for the Carteret County Health Department, was interviewed by WITN and readily admitted that all the cases have been in fully vaccinated children, and that the vaccine does not offer protection:
“Every case that we’ve had, that we’ve seen so far, has been vaccinated. So you can’t take for granted that just because your child’s been vaccinated for pertussis that they don’t have the capability of contracting it.” (Source.)
