Former anti-vaxxer's emotional plea following newborn daughter contracting whooping cough
April 17, 2016
An Australian woman with a newborn has passed whooping cough onto her daughter, and now wishes she'd taken the vaccine (opens new window) she was offered:
"I was offered the injection in week 28, being the healthy, fit organic woman that I am I said "leave me alone", I said "I don't need this crap"
"I got over it very quick, it was not it was nothing for me, but she is into week four and every hour I have to stay here watch her going blue, watch her go blue, watch her cry, and give her oxygen. She is my only child and if I could turn back time I would have protected myself, so that's my message,"
