On facebook....I shared an article and responded that the person who wrote the article was playing off people's emotions (her 27day old baby died of pertussis) to get other people to vaccinate against pertussis because it could have saved her baby's life and she's trying to save other babies. I looked up pertussis briefly because I was pretty sure that the vaccine only prevented the symptoms, but not the disease itself. I stated that, and some new info... an article said that they're finding a higher incidence in contracting the disease in those who are vaccinated vs. those who are not vaccinated. I also said that if my baby happened to be around someone who had contracted the disease, I would like to know if they are coughing, not having the symptoms masked because they were vaccinated!
Now I cant find the article, and I have to cite my sources. So, anyone have some scientific links (peer reviewed journal articles, *.org sites, etc? I can cite? When I made my decision to not vaccinate, I still had access to Jstor from college. The person I have to cite my sources for is in nursing school, so she does, I'm sure....
