10/20/2011: "Whooping Cough Continues"
Pertussis, commonly called whooping cough is with us in the county once again. There are currently several cases, and the SJC Health Officer stresses the greatest concern is for infants. The good news is the exposure time for the first reported cases is coming to an end, and hopefully that will also be the end of new cases. Flu shots can be helpful, so contact your medical provider for advice.
