Protect Babies from Whooping Cough Infographic from the CDC

Health Insurance Companies Process 1 in 5 Claims Wrong

Get All 5 Doses of the Whooping Cough Vaccine

Whooping Cough cases have been on the rise since the 1990’s with about 1 out of every 2 babies needing to be hospitalized if they acquire the disease.  To help parents understand how to protect their babies the Centers for Disease Control CDC has come out with an Infographic that explains the three steps that parents should take. The whooping cough vaccine is also know as the pertussis vaccine.

Below I have included both the graphic and text version of the CDC’s Protect Babies From Whooping Cough Infographic.

About half of infants who get whooping cough are hospitalized!
[picture of arrow saying “1 out of 2” pointing to hospital] Whooping cough cases across the U.S. have been on the rise since the 1980s.

Pregnant women need to get a Tdap shot

Mom: This vaccine helps protect you from whooping cough and passes some protection to your baby.
