LAUSD Asks For Reprieve From Whooping Cough Mandate

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles Unified School District is asking Gov. Jerry Brown for a reprieve from a new state law that requires students to be vaccinated for whooping cough.

All seventh through 12th grade students are now required receive the DTaP immunization, which protects against Pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough.

The district briefly ran out of the vaccine and Superintendent John Deasy says thousands of students need more time get vaccinated.

    Do we know why we have an epidemic of whopping cough that was basically wiped out in the 60’s with vaccination? Its all the illegals and their kids who have had no vaccinations had are just disease carriers going to school getting your kid sick. When is enough enough?

    Unfortunately, there’s another reason. A lot of parents believed the erroneous report that vaccinations caused autism and purposely didn’t vaccinate their kids, so they too are spreading whooping cough, measles, and chicken pox. Ignorance is one thing, but to deliberately put your infected child in with others because you don’t believe in it is criminal. If you don’t want them vaccinated, okay, but keep them away from the rest of us!!!!!
