California: Officials at an upscale private Los Angeles high school said that a lack of vaccinations does not explain an outbreak of whooping cough, as 30 students, all of them vaccinated, have reportedly been diagnosed with whooping cough, also known as pertussis. The vaccine was reported to provide protection for four years. Only 18 of Harvard-Westlake’s roughly 1,600 students have medical exemptions allowing them to opt out of immunizations, and none of those students have contracted the disease.

Los Angeles County officials reported that all 90 people who have recently come down with whooping cough within the county this year had been immunized against it.

Note: So, in this California Whoopsieing Daisy Cough outbreak, the small number of unvaccinated children do NOT have the w hooping cough. but 30 vaccinated students do. Ergo, the unvaccinated children are healthier. Meanwhile, the unvaccinated face expulsion based on their school year thanks to SB277.

Officials at a Los Angeles high school said Tuesday that a lack of vaccinations does not explain an outbreak of whooping cough.

“We have a really high vaccination rate in our community, which is something we’re very grateful for,” Harvard-Westlake spokesperson Ari Engelberg said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Thirty students at the private school have reportedly been diagnosed with whooping cough, also known as pertussis, recently.

Engelberg also told reporters that only 18 of Harvard-Westlake’s roughly 1,600 students have medical exemptions allowing them to opt out of immunizations. He added that none of those students have contracted the disease.

Los Angeles County officials warned area doctors in an email last week about three clusters in the county, according to the Times.  Read more at THE HILL.com.
