There is no better expert on the subject of pertussis than Dr. Jim Cherry from UCLA. This week, we are releasing a commentary (doi: 10.1542/peds.2011-2594) he has written to help us make sense of the recent outbreaks of this disease, despite the high numbers of children and adults who have been vaccinated. Dr. Cherry injects some insight into the reasons for vaccine failure and as a result, shares ways we can improve our herd immunity to this disease. Don’t miss this one!
