Kaliahs Petition to Vaccinate for Pertussis, Tdap

Spread the word, so you don't spread the disease!
New 30 Day saturation campaign. Please read latest update! Shifting focus from exemptions to awareness! We have challenged the CDC and other organizations and agencies to begin a 30 day saturation campaign to share the CDC new recommendations for Tdap for all teens and adults and let them know the childhood vaccination has most likely worn off. The state and local health agencies are looking to fund the campaign in the Seattle area and we need the Federal agencies to step up and carry the message to the national level!

If you don't agree with our new stance, please let me know and I will remove your signature. Thanks for your support!

Pertussis Vaccination unless medical exemption for entry into Public Schools and Daycares

Babies are dying from Whooping cough and it is partially because we allow people to exempt their children from the vaccine. A Public Awareness Campaign should also be initiated to target Adults who have not received the Tdap, as only 10% of adults nationwide are vaccinated for Pertussis and there is currently an epidemic in our state of Washington which has the highest percentage of exemptions in the nation. Kaliah died in August at only 27 days old. Please read and share Kaliah's story. If you would like to share the petition, you may click the facebook like button, and it will allow you to share.
