Pertussis

If you believe you may have pertussis or have been exposed to someone with pertussis (also known as whooping cough) please contact your doctor or the Health Department.

There is a vaccine to prevent the disease as well as treatment for those with symptoms
and preventative treatment for those exposed.

It is very important to protect infants and children from this disease as it is
more severe or fatal in infants and young children.

Call 920-674-7275 for more information.

The pertussis vaccine is available at the Health Department.
