Vintage Diseases Making a Comeback

wiljefv Re:Whooping Cough Sucks (403 comments)

Luckily for adults, the tetanus booster now contains a pertussis component. TDaP. Finally approved. I work for a state health department in the immunization section and pertussis was a major problem in our state last year because adults often carry it but show no symtoms. TDaP will save a lot of other adolescents and adults the agony you went through.
