ALERT : Whooping Cough Outbreak Caused By Vaccinated Children In Alabama

The Alabama Department of Public Health is notifying the public of its investigation into several cases of pertussis, commonly known as “whooping cough.”

Public health officials say there are currently six laboratory-confirmed cases of the highly-contagious respiratory disease in Chambers County, which is located on the Alabama-Georgia line north of Auburn.

According to ABC 31

 Those who have pertussis are vaccinated children.

“Our concern is that children who have been vaccinated have contracted the disease,” said ADPH Assistant State Health Officer Dr. Karen Landers, “We also want to make sure that we take all the necessary steps to follow up fully with those who have been exposed and educate those who may have come in contact with a person currently ill with the disease.”

As if we need more proof as to why you should not vaccinate, here is another example.
