The funny thing is the cdc released a statement that the whopping cough vaccine may be actually be spreading it. Which is weird because It's supposed to be a non-live vaccine.

So it could have been spread by a vaccinated child or adult

I don't understand if the vaccines work, it should be no fear. If they don't work, why vax.

80% of the pertussis cases were linked to vaccinated children.

It wasn't just adults but kids in the 12-13 age range as well, it is believed the vaccine begins to wane by that age.
