Pertussis | Whooping Cough | Outbreaks | CDC

Persisting cough? Is it due to "cedar fever," a viral infection, a bacterial infection or other? This time of year it can be difficult to sort out because of the seasonal convergence of contagion and allergen triggers. When families and friends gather to celebrate the holiday season is the perfect setting for contagion to spread like wildfire. Get immunized before Uncle Fred and nephew Timmy turn up at your front door this holiday. Most acute onset cough or acute bronchitis will improve in about 10 days and does not require antibiotics. What you can do to protect against serious causes of infectious illnesses this time of year is to stay up today with the influenza vaccine, pneumococcal vaccine and pertussis vaccine. Get immunized with: -Tdap shot -Pneumococcal vaccine -Flu shot
