Is 'Improved' Vaccine Causing Whooping Cough Outbreaks?
Date:8/1/2012

States. Washington state has been particularly hard hit. Noting that these are reported cases, Clark said there could actually be 1 million to 1.5 million people with pertussis in the United States. Most of these undiagnosed cases are mild, he noted.

Clark urges everyone, including adults, to get vaccinated. "It's the best protection against the disease," he said. "We used to have upwards of 10,000 deaths a year," he pointed out.

Vaccination rates among children and adolescents are high, but the rate for adults is only about 8 percent, he said.
