The California Senate Voted to Give Your Child Whooping Cough

This is the latest peer reviewed science-not “vaccine misinformation.” These studies show that the Pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine has now failed. Studies show that by five years after completion of the DTaP series, children were up to 15 times more likely to acquire pertussis compared to the first year after the series. California schools are now suffering a Pertussis outbreak (3,455 cases in 2018 compared to 14 Measles cases) affecting primarily vaccinated children.

So why did 20 California Democratic senators vote to mandate this dangerous vaccine to our children? “The science is complicated” one Senator explained to RFK, Jr., “so mainly we rely on Richard Pan. It’s about collegiality to Richard.”

With mandates legislation sweeping across the nation, the stakes are too high for citizens to tolerate laziness, scientific illiteracy and a default to collegiality in our elected leaders. It’s time for lawmakers to fact-check their sources.
