Washington facing worst whopping-cough epidemic in 70 years

Posted on May 4, 2012




May 4, 2012 – WASHINGTON – More than 1,100 cases of whooping cough have already been diagnosed this year in Washington State, nearly doubling the number seen in typical “peak” years. Washington State is gearing up for one of the worst epidemics of pertussis in nearly seven decades. Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a highly contagious bacterial infection that causes a nasty and often severe cough. It is particularly dangerous for young infants. Public health officials have confirmed more than 1,100 cases of whooping cough so far this year in Washington State. Thankfully, no deaths have been reported from this year’s outbreak but 20 infants have been hospitalized already with the illness. Washington’s governor Christine Gregoire announced yesterday that state emergency funds would be available to provide free vaccinations and help spread awareness about the disease and the importance of getting vaccinated. In the U.S. most kids that get immunized receive a series of vaccines against whooping cough at the age of two months. But some kids don’t get immunized, either because their parents object or they are unaware of the importance. Outbreaks of pertussis are not uncoming, but they do tend to run in cycles. Tim Church, a spokesman for the Washington’s state Health Department said the current epidemic in Washington State was running well above typical peak years in the past, when 500 to 600 cases might be reported for an entire year. –Mother Nature Network [link to theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com]

wtf ever

pertussis is most dangerous to children under 6 months of age (or anyone w/asthma, respiratory illnesses)
pertussis vaccines do not help children until they're over 6 months of age because their immune systems are too immature

here's how you prevent babies from getting pertussis:

1. breastfeed
this passes on antibodies to your baby and helps protect him against pertussis and other diseases which mom already has antibodies against

2. keep your baby HOME
there is no need to be running all over the place to show off your newborn. stay HOME. don't let people touch your baby. if you must go out keep a blanket over the carrier and if someone comes to peek at your babe tell them to back it up. ffs it should be common sense. and the worst places for babies to pick up illnesses are the pediatrician's office and daycare. when people come to visit they must wash their hands. sick people should not be allowed around the baby. again, common sense.

Re: Washington facing worst whopping-cough epidemic in 70 years!!!
I got whooping cough in 95. I live in WA.The health department called me and asked me a bunch of questions. It was the most horrible illness I have ever experienced. I was coughing and puking and suffocating at the same time.....Can somebody get it twice? or am I immune now?

no, i feel bad for the babes

the wtf ever is from the fearmongering, vaccine pushing article

what did the article say about breastfeeding your infant? the BEST way to protect a baby from pertussis is breastfeeding. did the article mention that young babies should not be out in public, that pediatrician's offices are contaminated and that daycares are germ factories? no, because they want to sell vaccines as the "cure all". when they aren't. they don't want moms raising their own kids and feeding them the way nature intended. that's not good for the corporations (formula, vaccines, pharmaceuticals to treat the damage they cause, etc.) or the "let the government raise your kids while you work as a debt slave" agenda.

Had it decades ago when I was a 2 year old infant and nearly died. At 6 or 7 had a really bad case of measles with a fever so high I was hallucinating and thought bugs were crawling all over me.

There was no vaccines for these things at that time and children died from them.

Some parents are simply idiot when it comes to getting some very necessary vaccinations for their kids.

By all means be informed as to which vaccines are the safest, but do vaccinate your kids.

How many of these cases were already vaccinated 3 times as a kid and in the instances of the adults, vaccinated again *and* got it.

Yes, you can get pertussis again and again. Happened in Chicago in the 80's where children who were up-to-date on their vaccines (including whooping cough) caught the disease anyway.

Love a great vaccine scare story without the who was vaccinated/who was not left out of it.
