Melbourne, Australia. A few days away from having his whooping cough vaccination, the bacteria got to 7-week-old Osman Chandab. Baby Osman needed 24/7 breathing support as a relentless cough took over his tiny body. He was lucky to survive, but 1 in 250 infants hospitalised with whooping cough die. His case proves the importance of timely vaccination.
In ‘JABBED: Love, Fear and Vaccines’, documentary filmmaker Sonya Pemberton tells Osman’s story and questions the real risks of vaccines and the diseases they prevent. Watch it tonight at 8:30pm on SBS ONE.
