According to the Cypress Health Region, several cases of whooping cough, (Pertussis) have been identified in South West Saskatchewan,including the Cypress Health Region. Whooping cough is a highly contagious and serious infection of the lungs and throat. It is easily

spread when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or has close contact with others. Young un-immunized children get sicker than older children and adults. Vaccines for whooping cough are a part of the routine childhood immunization program, as well

as boosters for young and older adults. The public is strongly encouraged to ensure that their and their children’s vaccinations are up

to date to ensure best protection. Expecting mothers are also strongly encouraged to check their immunizations. If unsure if your immunizations are up to date, you can call your local public health office using the numbers listed on our website.

Whooping cough starts like a common cold with symptoms including sneezing, runny nose, mild fever, and a mild cough. During the next week or two the cough gets worse, leading to severe coughing spells that often end with a whooping sound before the next breath. Serious complications of whooping cough, which most often occur in infants, may include apnea(breathing stops), pneumonia, convulsions/seizures, and encephalopathy (brain damage) that may be permanent. Whooping cough can result in severe complications and death.
