Whoops

An Imperial Beach elementary school student has been diagnosed with pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough. On July 1, South Bay Union School District superintendent Carol Parish sent a letter to parents whose children may have come into contact with the ill student.

The third-grade student attended Oneonta Elementary School, which held its last day of classes on June 25. However, the school will be the site for a summer day-care program beginning on Monday, July 6.

Whooping cough is a highly contagious illness spread through the air when an ill person coughs or sneezes.

A ten-year old at Lemon Crest Elementary school in Lakeside was diagnosed on Monday, June 29, according to county health officials.

The Imperial Beach student’s illness was the 45th case of whooping cough reported in the county so far this year. In all of 2008, 51 cases of whooping cough were reported in San Diego County.

A 10-year-old student of Murray Manor Elementary School in La Mesa (La Mesa-Spring Valley School District) is now the latest child to be diagnosed with whooping cough. There have now been 50 cases to date this year according to the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency. If you feel safe because you are an adult read this from Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., San Diego County Public Health Officer.

"Whooping cough can occur at any age, but infants and young children are at highest risk of life-threatening complications, the most common of which is pneumonia. In adolescents and adults, rib fractures and difficulty sleeping may occur. Anyone who is not immunized is at a higher risk for severe whooping cough. It is recommended that children get five doses of DTaP vaccine, one dose at 2 mo., 4 mo., 6 mo., 15-18 mo., and 4-6 years of age. It is also recommended that people 11- 64 years of age receive a one-time dose of Tdap, given in place of a 'tetanus booster,' which is administered every 10 years."
