The Epidemiology unit at Florida Health- St. Lucie County has noticed an increase in activity of reported pertussis (whooping cough) involving infants less than one year of age. Pertussis most commonly affects infants and young children and can be fatal (especially in babies less than one year of age and infants too young to be vaccinated). Because of this, we would like to share some information regarding this vaccine preventable disease.
