WHOOPING COUGH COMES TO LRGV

When I was at the VA on Friday they were telling vets they needed to get vaccinated  for whooping cough.  In fact the nurse who did the injection had just gotten over the whooping cough.  I was told it is becoming a problem in LRGV, which is in fact the national trend.  I did the three in one vaccine.  See below.

Here is the latest CDC warning an alert.  Parents need to get educated.

I got the vaccine not only because I know my immune system is shot over the hormonal deficiencies, but also because I am around babies.  This was the key - a friend of mine has a two week old grandson - everyone in that family adults and children alike need to get vaccinated.

In 2010, the US had 21000 cases among children, teens and adults.

My mother-in-law at the age of 86 got whooping cough, needless to say it really took it's toll on her and she took quite some time to recuperate. This is coming back and as you said it's the adults that need to get vacinated. Glad you posted it!
