Dr. Bush wants you to know:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advises that whooping cough (pertussis) is a serious and occasionally deadly disease that can cause babies to stop breathing. Often, this disease is passed from an infected adult caregiver to not yet vaccinated infants. You can help protect babies from `whooping cough by getting vaccinated. The vaccine that is recommended for adults is available in the Health Clinic.

The signs and symptoms of whooping cough

  • Begins similarly to the common cold with a mild cough or fever.
  • After 1-2 weeks. severe and recurrent cough can begin.
  • The cough can progress to a series of coughing fits and may continue for weeks.

Rapid violent coughing may occur over and over again in fits or spasms until all the air is gone; then the person is forced to inhale quickly between coughs which produces a loud "whooping" sound.

If you develop a cold that includes a lengthy or prolonged severe coughing, it may be the whooping cough. It is time to see a doctor.
