Pertussis, or whooping cough, cases continue to rise in Iowa. Pertussis begins with cold-like symptoms and develops into long periods of coughing that can lead to a loud inhaled “whoop” as the lungs refill with air. The cough can come and go for weeks and is typically worse at night. Pertussis can also cause vomiting, interrupted sleep, and breathing problems. Infants less than a year old are at greatest risk for complications from pertussis. Many infants with pertussis need to be hospitalized. Adults and adolescents canalso catch pertussis. Unfortunately, many adults and adolescents mistake pertussis for a bad cold with a prolonged cough or seasonal allergies. Left undetected, pertussis spreads from adults and adolescents to young children and infants. Protect yourself and your family from pertussis by getting a pertussis booster. It is especially important if you have frequent contact with young children and infants. Check with your vaccine provider to be sure that you are up to date and fully vaccinated against pertussis. Children under age 10 who are current as required for school entry do not need a booster until age 11.
