Dr. Jeff Bishop, a pediatrician who is treating Isabelle at Victoria General Hospital, said whooping cough is incredibly infectious and spreads easily through contact with anyone who is inadequately vaccinated.
He said that anecdotally, he has noticed over the past year the hospital has treated more children with whooping cough than usual. A small number of children have died during the past five years, he added.
“These are diseases that kill children and we’re lucky that in Canada we see them very rarely. But we’re seeing them come back. We’re seeing measles, we’re seeing babies die from whooping cough where previously we weren’t.”
Man these stories piss me off. Vaccinate your kids.
Why are people becoming such tools? Why do these hippies think some blog they read on the internet written by an elder flower tea drinking, snake skin soup eating, C- list celebrity invalidates decades of scientific research?
I thought you couldn't send your kids to school if they weren't vaccinated? That's how it was when I was a kid.
Now us tax payers are spending probably $500,000 treating Isabelle because some idiot thinks a $5 vaccine was going to give their kid who-knows-what because of, like, the corporations, man.
