Whooping Cough

[2010 April] Cameron C Grant, Stewart Reid. Pertussis continues to put New Zealand’s immunisation strategy to the test.  NZMJ 30 April 2010, Vol 123 No 1313; ISSN 1175 8716


Astonishing article on pertussis.  Soo… because the risk of hospitalization since 1960 has gone up steadily to the point where it has now DOUBLED in littlies… and has increased by half in older children, the answer is to vaccinate more.  Even though Grant admits that the effectiveness of the vaccine is unknown.  This is just mind-boggling stuff.----Hilary Butler.
