Vaccines and Public Health: Salvation or Slaughter?

[SaneVax: Vaccines in general are promoted as the best invention since sliced bread. Pertussis vaccines are no exception. If this vaccine is so effective, why is one of the most vaccinated countries in the world currently experiencing the worst outbreaks of whooping cough in decades?

A “perfect storm” is an expression that describes an event where a combination of circumstances will aggravate a situation drastically.

So, what could be the circumstances contributing to the increase in pertussis/parapertussis infections in the United States… (reiterating here: even with the highest rates of vaccine coverage ever experienced)?
