pertussis vaccine: does it prevent transmission? - Page 2

post #21 of 22
Japonica,
sounds to me like they are looking for an excuse for vaccine failure

In order to promote the vaccine for teens and adults they had to encourage accurate diagnosis of pertussis, so they could use that to justify the vaccine.

Accurate diagnosis lets the cat out of the bag, that the vaccine doesn't work the way they are trying to imply that it works.

All my opinion, of course.

one of the early articles at insidevaccines addressed some of the funky numbers that the CDC was using...

Yeah, it starts to seem like a circular argument..."pertussis is everywhere"-->"we need to make sure everyone is vaccinated"-->"the vaccine is not providing adequate protection"-->"pertussis is everywhere"-->"we need to make sure everyone is vaccinated"

I think Dr.Cherry's original antigenic sin hypothesis provides one of the better explanations as to why the vaccine does not provide the level of "protection" officials assume it does.
