Please share our event and ask everyone to invite their friends, it is open to the public!
We have a Facebook page with a link to the states legislators to tell them you want to be informed if there is an epidemic in your area, and you want them to tell everyone about the fact that all Whooping Cough vaccine, including the Tdap booster shot we are getting now wears off, and people need to be told that so they get another booster in a few years.
Right now, there is no one responsible for doing that. They do not have to say anything, and they don't. The Washington state Department of Health wouldn't say anything here about our epidemic, until we screamed at them and threatened them with bad press!
They waited 3 months after the Whooping cough epidemic started! They waited until in their own words "It was the worst epidemic in 40 years! Now in their own words, it is the worst epidemic in 70 years. Don't you think they should have told us sooner? Three things we need:
#1. Sign the Change.org petition here:
#2. Go to the event page and select your home state Stop Whooping Cough Facebook page to find the link to your local legislators
#3. Click the link to call or send an email to your local legislators, telling them you want Kaliah's Law in your state. Say or send something like this:
"I want Kaliah's Law in my state. I want to be sent a notification as soon as an epidemic reaches my community. I don't want to find out after it is too late to do anything to protect my family from any communicable disease."
