Yes, it's hard to look at...but this is what a vaccine-preventable illness looks like
Too many mothers tell us that because they haven't seen measles or pertussis or polio in their lifetime, that the diseases are under control enough to let their children go without vaccination. This poor, innocent soul is living proof that pertussis is still here. This child was too young to be vaccinated and was infected by an unvaccinated child.
This child is recovering.
This photo contains something you must consider when you decide whether or not to vaccinate. It's scary. It's hard to look at. But it's truth.
