(NaturalNews) A majority of the people coming down with whooping cough in Reno County, Kansas, were vaccinated against the disease, according to the county’s health department. A spokesperson for Hutchinson Schools took it further, noting that every case he had seen was in a vaccinated child.

Reno County is in the midst of an outbreak of whooping cough, also known as pertussis. As of July 31, there had been 41 cases considered confirmed or probable and more than 70 suspected cases. There were about 200 confirmed or probable cases statewide.

The Kansas outbreak is not the first to occur primarily among vaccinated people. In other recent outbreaks, including the one in Falmouth, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, nearly all of those who fell ill had received the pertussis vaccine.
