Video: 'Sounds of Pertussis' Campaign Urges Adults to Take Action During National Immunization Awareness Month
Date:8/20/2009

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. and SWIFTWATER, Pa., Aug. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- August is National Immunization Awareness Month, and while many people may associate vaccinations with babies, adults need immunizations, too. The "Sounds of Pertussis", a campaign from the March of Dimes and Sanofi Pasteur, the vaccines division of the sanofi-aventis Group, is educating adults about pertussis prevention, so that they can keep themselves healthy and reduce the risk of transmitting the disease to the infants in their lives.

Adults can contract pertussis and unknowingly pass it on to others, including babies, who have the most serious complications and highest death rates from the disease. Children are typically immunized against pertussis, but are not fully protected until after receiving three or four doses of the vaccine. Immunity from the childhood pertussis vaccine wears off over time in adults, and, unfortunately, most are not aware they need to get an adult pertussis booster.

To encourage adults to make sure they are up-to-date on their tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis (Tdap) booster, the Office of the Mayor of New York City has joined the "Sounds of Pertussis" campaign and proclaimed August 20, 2009 "Pertussis Awareness Day."
