Some adults incorrectly assume that the vaccines they received as children will protect them for the rest of their lives. Generally this is true, except that:

* Some adults were never vaccinated as children.
* Newer vaccines were not available when some adults were children.
* Immunity can begin to fade over time.
* As we age, we become more susceptible to serious disease caused by common infections (such as flu and pneumococcus, and shingles). (CDC)

· “Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools available for
preventing disease and death. They not only help protect vaccinated individuals, but also
help protect entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases,
as well as reduce the costs associated with missed time from work, doctor visits, and
· Infants are particularly vulnerable to infectious diseases; that is why it is critical to protect
them through immunization. Each day, nearly 12,000 babies are born in the United States
who will need to be immunized against 14 vaccine-preventable diseases before age two.
· Immunization is a shared responsibility. Families, healthcare providers, and public health
officials must work together to help protect the entire community.
· Immunizations are one of the most important ways parents can protect their children
against serious diseases. Parents are encouraged to talk to their healthcare provider to
ensure that their infant is up-to-date on immunizations.
· Healthcare providers play a critical role in educating parents about the importance of
immunization and ensuring that infants are fully immunized.
· Because of the success of vaccines in preventing disease in the United States, parents are
often unaware that their children are at risk for so many life-threatening diseases.
· Vaccine-preventable diseases are at an all-time low in the United States. However, these |
diseases still exist and continued vaccination is necessary to protect everyone from potential
· Immunizations are extremely safe. Vaccines are thoroughly tested before being approved for
public use and monitored carefully by doctors, researchers, and public health officials.”   -AAP


Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory disease.
It is caused by the bacterium Bordetella pertussis.
Pertussis is known for uncontrollable, violent coughing which often makes it hard to breathe.
After fits of many coughs, someone with pertussis often needs to take deep breathes which
result in a "whooping" sound. Pertussis most commonly affects infants and young children
and can be fatal, especially in babies less than 1 year of age.”  -CDC

The best way to protect against pertussis is IMMUNIZATION.”
