Pertussis/Whooping Cough Update

4/4/12
Pertussis (whooping cough) is reaching epidemic levels in our state. 
So far in 2012 more than 600 cases have been reported, compared to fewer than 100 cases
in the time period in 2011.  This puts us on track to have the highest number of cases in decades.

The disease affects people of all ages,
but is most serious in infants.  The rate of pertussis in infants
in our state is nearly five times the overall rate of disease for all ages. 
Most infants get this disease from their parents or other adult family members.

Vaccination is the key to stopping the spread of this disease. 
Please check with your health care providers
and make sure each member of your family
has current pertussis immunization coverage.
