Whooping cough is at epidemic levels in Colorado.  It is encouraged for all to get a whooping-cough vaccine.  You are not only keeping yourself healthy by doing so but also making sure your not spreading the cough to anyone else including infants.  Infants are particularly susceptible to pertussis and have a much higher rate of hospitalizations and deaths. Infants get a series of doses in their first year to protect against pertussis.  So this leaves them vulnerable against this disease.  Take the time today to go get vaccinated.
