Pertussis vaccine

Starting in the 2014/2015 school year, the pertussis vaccine is mandatory for children to attend school and daycare.

The pertussis vaccine protects against whooping cough; an infection that causes uncontrollable and severe coughing. Immunization against whooping cough not only protects you, but also the most vulnerable population: infants. Infants are the most at risk for severe symptoms and complications.
