Pertussis (Whopping Cough)

Pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough, was considered an eradicated childhood illness until recently. It is now re-emerging as a serious, and potentially fatal, health risk to infants less than 12 months of age and older adults.

Whooping cough is a highly contagious bacterial disease usually spread by coughing. Common symptoms are severe coughing attacks that can last for months. Infants too young for the vaccination are at the greatest risk of developing pertussis, and tend to develop more severe complications. Complications can include pneumonia and neurological conditions including seizures. Over 48,000 cases were reported nationwide in 2012, including fifteen infant deaths. Current CDC guidelines urge ALL adults who have contact with infants under six months of age to receive a booster regardless of the time interval between one’s last regular tetanus-diphtheria vaccination.(Td)

Connecticut has implemented a cocoon program intended to create a protective cocoon of immunity around the infant. Studies show that infants are often infected by their parents or caregivers. Therefore vaccinating family members and caregivers against pertussis is an important way to protect infants. Caregivers are parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and childcare providers. Make sure you have been vaccinated against pertussis. Pertussis is given as a combination injection with tetanus and diphtheria, called Tdap. The Cocoon program is provided through RVNA and provides a free Tdap vaccine for a $21 administration fee. Call 203.438.5555 ext. 1119 to schedule your Tdap vaccination.
