Whooping Cough Outreach Targets Minorities in Calif.
Last week, the California Department of Health announced the launch of an outreach campaign designed to disseminate information about pertussis, or whooping cough, to minority communities throughout the state. The health department is teaming up with the ethnic media group New America Media to raise awareness about whooping cough vaccinations. The state also has released Spanish-language public service announcements about the disease.
