Pertussis epidemic, Washington State

I've been working on our tax return today and will be spending Easter Sunday with Holly's parents, so I'm going to keep this week's post short.

Tuesday the Washington State Secretary of Health Mary Selecky announced that the incidence of pertussis has reached epidemic levels in Washington. There have been 640 cases since January 1st, compared to 94 cases by this time last year.

For those who have not yet received a Tdap, many pharmacies now offer immunization: Adult Vaccination Locator

Happy Easter!
