Because we all fear immigration?

California Epidemic of Pertussis (page 15)

There is a critical outbreak of pertussis (whooping cough) in California: it is classified now as an epidemic. Five infants, all Latino, have died. This is due to unrecognized pertussis in older children and adults which then infects babies before they’ve had a chance to get their shots. PLEASE spread the word through every mechanism you have that it is critical to get DTaP in adolescents and adults and to get children immunized properly. Providers are not recognizing pertussis and MUST keep this in mind with cough illnesses. Families must not fear immigration to get in for shots, and the public must understand that pertussis is not brought here by immigrants---it is local people passing it around to vulnerable populations. Please share any media resources you have with us so we can all work together! This is a NATIONAL problem as increases are also being seen in several other states.

We have been talking with people at CDC and have the following links for your interest. We are working on low literacy methods to assist the public.

So whooping cough is here, the multicultural folks are worried about people being afraid of "immigration" (meaning Immigration and Customs Enforcement) but then rush to assure everyone that it isn't immigrants bringing this disease back to the United States.

I guess it's just those mean old American citizens passing it on to helpless illegal aliens. Don't worry though, we will cover the medical costs to make up for our meanness.

"After vaccinations were introduced in the 1940s, incidence fell dramatically to less than 1 per 100,000 by 1970. Incidence rates have increased somewhat since 1980."

That would coincide with your sainted Ronald Reagan letting illegals in by the millions.

Just another painful reminder of why LEGAL immigrants are screened for diseases and a criminal history and illegals can't be.

Yes Reagan did do a one time Amnesty, thanks to Democrat - Ted Kennedy, who Promised him only one ever, and then spent the last 20 years of his life pushing for another one, with 5 times the illegals here.

Ted K., the drunk driver/drowner, even CONvinced pres. George W and sen. John Mcamnesty/cain to do another one but the people stopped it in Congress, gee a few times we stopped it now.

Meanwhile Pres. Hussein Obama just told the people of S. America he supports another Amnesty! And will give Brazil over $2 Bil. of OUR borrowed money so they can sell us more of thier Oil?!

Big Brother speak with Forked Tongue, again - "the public must understand that pertussis is not brought here by immigrants---it is local people passing it around to vulnerable populations"

But the local people had their shots so how could they be spreading it too immigrants?

Because we all know that the Mexican Mafia feel sorry for the Drug Mules/illegals, that are carrying their shipments here that are coughing and would not make them continue on, right?

And Dengue fever and Chagas disease are not coming here from the illegals from the turd world either, it is a local problem folks.

I don't know about California but oregon has compulsary immunizations. If you don't get your kid immunized they kick them out of school, daycare etc...exactly how is it that the locals are causing the problem?

Maybe it's the kids in those families that refuse to seek medical treatment because they figure if they pray hard enough, the Lord Jesus Christ will take care of it.

Whooping Cough “Concerning Issue” In Central Oregon ...Jul 22, 2010 ... As the state of California deals with a whooping cough epidemic, do parents and families here in Central Oregon need to be concerned?

As long as the Hussein Obama administration continues to leave our border wide open, Yes be concerned.

Again people are Dying or Suffering because the Pres. and his Democrats will not secure our border! (instead they promote Amnesty and cheaper College and dangle that carrott to keep them sneaking in)

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that several other states besides California are seeing a significant rise in the number of reported "pertussis" cases. CDC reports that since the 1980's there has been a steady increase in the number 'Whooping Cough' or "Pertussis" cases, especially among teens ( 10-19) years of age and babies less than 6 months of age.

In 2008 there were more than 13,000 reported cases of "Pertussis" , including 18 deaths nationally. CDC reports that whooping cough outbreaks are being seen in several other states, indicating that "Pertussis" has gone up significantly and still rising.
