© 2015 Informa UK, Ltd. Several lines of evidence suggest that pertussis disease will continue to rise in countries which have switched to acellular vaccines.

In the absence of a clear alternative, a return to using whole cell vaccines, at least in part, should not be dismissed as an option without contemporary studies of feasibility and acceptability.
