An Australian mother-of-two Sandra Tanrikulu wanted to share a video of her youngest baby in the hospital. Being just 5-weeks-old, her baby contracted whooping cough. It was extremely easy for the baby to have gotten the condition, since the parents didn’t vaccinate. Now, Tanrikulu and her husband want other parents to learn the dangers of skipping vaccination.

This video may distress some people but I’m sharing to show just how scary and dangerous whooping cough is to babies who are too young to be vaccinated. This is my 5-week old baby during an episode where she chokes and stops breathing. Babies rely on herd immunity to keep them safe and unfortunately we cannot achieve that without high vaccination rates. Whooping cough is not always a loud obvious cough. The scary symptom for babies is when they don’t cough but silently choke and turn blue/purple from lack of oxygen. If we weren’t in the hospital and sitting watching our baby 24/7 the outcome would be fatal. Please don’t ignore the warning signs- our baby girl only had a slight cough to start. Please share this to educate more people on the importance of vaccinations.
