Additional Whooping Cough Vaccine To Be Delivered To Yakima

Thousands of additional doses of the whooping cough vaccine will be delivered to counties struggling with the epidemic. The Department of Health reports more than 2,000 new cases since April. Washington only saw a fraction of that all of last year.  In Yakima, the local health district reports roughly 250 cases.  There weren’t even five cases in all of last year.

The health district says the vaccines should help uninsured families. In all, 14,000 doses are being sent across the state.  “Each county gets an allotment and our providers are taking advantage of that so that tells me they’re using it,” said Yakima Health District Community Health Director Sheryl Di Pietro.

You can get a vaccination for whooping cough at Tieton Village Drugs. There is a $15 administration fee.
