Hi, an important aspect about pertussis or whooping cough
is vaccination. The best way to prevent pertussis is to get vaccinated. There are vaccines for infants, children, preteens, teens and adults. Researchers agree that refusal to vaccinate children against whooping cough
might have played a role in the 2010 pertussis outbreak in California. The whooping cough
vaccination is now recommended for all pregnant women between 28 and 38 weeks pregnant. Regards.
