Whooping Cough Resurgence Prompts Concern in Calif.
Nearly 350 cases of whooping cough have been reported in California from Jan. 1 to April 30, more than double the 129 cases reported during the same time period last year. Four California infants have died from the disease so far this year. Because infants are too young to be vaccinated against whooping cough, experts recommend that anyone who will be in contact with infants be vaccinated instead.
