Deschutes County health officials are warning the county has seen its first pertussis case in the last eight months.  A 3 year old contracted the disease.  Tom Kuhn, the head of the Deschutes County Health Department says the danger isn't anywhere near Washington's outbreak, where they've seen 2000 cases of whopping cough.   They just want the public to be aware.  “However we have seen a larger number of cases this year.  We’ve already had 380 cases in Oregon and in all of 2011 we had 328 cases, so we are seeing an increase in Oregon.  Not to the same level as Washington, but there is an increase.”  Health officials recommend people get vaccinated against pertussis.  People 11 and older should get the T-DAP vaccine.

Infants and children should get the D-TAP vaccine.
