You may have heard about increased cases of whooping cough lately.  Before you rush out and get the next vaccine, take a look at this report and get informed on your decision. 

The biggest thing you need to know about whooping cough is that the vaccine does not stop the transmission of whooping cough between vaccinated people.  So, for example, if you are getting your child vaccinated to protect your baby at home, the baby will not be protected.  Also important to note is that many adults get whooping cough every year, so even if every child and baby is vaccinated, there will still be whooping cough around circulating through adults.
