Dear mommies, i don't have much time to look at articles right now. I need some quick articles on pertussis. my good friend doesn't want to vaccinate but her husband is set on it. he hasn't done much research, but recently he read about the pertussis outbreaks and that more and more people are getting it because of the unvaccinated population. 


I have given both of them a lot of information already but I need something specific for him. I find that usually husbands are the one opposing. I am also thinking about some good "herd immunity" concept articles. I mostly have a lot of books not articles that I can send to someone.  thank you

Hilary Butler is (IMO) the go to resource on all things whooping cough


Make sure he understands the concept of original antigentic sin, which she discusses in detail, it is key to understanding why the pertussis vaccine doesn't work and vaccine-induced immunity is completely inferior to natural immunity.
