Someone who is vaccinated, but becomes sick with whooping cough, should have a less severe course of illness
But in pertussis, the disease is caused by toxins that are released by bacteria. The pertussis vaccine protects you against those toxins, but it may not prevent you from spreading the bacteria to others — and causing illness in them.
Get vaccinated so you can have a mild form of the disease, not know you have pertussis, and walk around spreading it to others. Way to go!

It's OK, Senator Pan. Just keep ignoring the science and insist on blaming the "anti-vaxxers." Enjoy the deception while it lasts, though. As Sophocles warned us, "A lie never grows old."
