Cases in Logan County
Whooping Cough is on the Rise—Get
Cases of whooping cough (also called pertussis)
are on the rise in our community. [As of
2/27/2018, there have been four cases of
whooping cough in Logan County Ohio.]
the Signs of Whooping Cough
Whooping cough vaccines work well, but cannot
prevent all cases of this serious disease.
Whooping cough starts like the common cold, with
a runny nose or congestion, sneezing, a mild
cough, or fever. But after 1 to 2 weeks, severe
coughing can begin. Unlike the common cold,
whooping cough can become a series of violent
and rapid coughing fits that continue for weeks.
These coughing fits force all of the air out of
the lungs. People can make a
loud “whooping” sound when they are finally
able to breathe again. That sound is
how whooping cough got its name. However, it is
important to know that many babies with whooping
cough don’t cough at all. If you or your child
develops a cold that includes a lengthy or
severe cough, it may be whooping cough. The best
way to know is to see your doctor.
Whooping cough is a serious
disease that can cause violent coughing fits
lasting up to 10 weeks or more. It can be quite
severe, even deadly, especially for babies under
6 months old, who are too young to be well
protected by vaccines. The disease starts out
like a cold, and it spreads easily. Babies often
catch whooping cough from parents, siblings, and
other caregivers, who may not even know they are
sick. Help protect the babies in our community
against whooping cough.
The Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all
preteens, teens, and adults – including pregnant
women – get a vaccine called Tdap. By
vaccinating adults and young people in our
community, we can surround our babies with
protection. Babies and young children also need
their own vaccines against whooping cough—called
DTaP. Be sure to get your children vaccinated on
time against whooping cough according to CDC’s
recommended immunization schedule. To learn more
about whooping cough and the vaccines to prevent
it, visit www.cdc.gov/whoopingcough
or talk to your health care professional.
