In the traditional manner of annual pro-vaccine propaganda, a recent report by Laura L. Myers of Reuters published on July 20, 2012, continues the seasonal fear-mongering by the vaccine industry and the medical establishment in an attempt to stampede Americans into receiving the DTaP (Diptheria, Tetanus & Pertussis) vaccine.
Entitled, “U.S. whooping cough outbreak could be worst in half century,” the article repeats the warning that has undoubtedly come straight from the vaccine industry and the public health agencies they control, that 2012 “is on track to be the most severe [Pertussis outbreak] in over half a century . . .”
She writes,Washington State, which declared an epidemic in April, and Wisconsin were particularly hard hit, with each reporting more than 3,000 cases, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Nine people have died overall and the number of cases was already more than double than at the same time last year.
