Panhandle Health District holding Whooping Cough clinics

KXLY, September 9, 2010

With schools back in session in North Idaho, the Panhandle Health District is warning parents and teachers about a Whooping Cough outbreak.

So far 59 cases of Pertussis – better known as Whooping Cough – have been reported since January and two infants were recently hospitalized. Now health officials are getting the word out and encouraging kids to get vaccinated to stop the spread of whooping cough this fall.That can be a challenge when Idaho is has one of the lowest immunization rates in the United States.
