Sounds of Pertussis (Whooping Cough) with Jennifer Lopez

November 13, 2019

I’m Jennifer Lopez and here’s a sound no
mother wants to hear. It’s pertussis, whooping cough, and if you think it’s
hard to listen to for 60 seconds imagine hearing it again and again for an hour
then to imagine it continues over the course of the day and with little rest
into the night for weeks even months. Now imagine this sound is coming from your
baby. Pertussis is most often spread by parents and it’s potentially fatal to
infants even when babies themselves are vaccinated. They’re not protected until
after three or four doses, so do what I did, help protect your baby by protecting
yourself. Ask your health care provider about the adult pertussis vaccine
because what would you do if your baby caught this from you?

    this is propaganda. it is terrifying that babies can get whooping cough. but majority of cases in 2012 who have gotten whooping cough were kids who were already vaccinated and up to date!

    My nephew got Whooping cough at 18 months old. He wasn't given any shots. My 80 yr old Aunt and Uncle were exposed and not one wanted to tell them. I did. I don't like sickness and secrecy and all this and not getting shots is scary. So much shit out there to catch ppl!

    Whooping cough is awful, and it's important that adults get vaccinated to avoid spreading it to infants.
