P.G. Sees Whooping Cough Outbreak

Very contagious, where’s it coming from?

Seven cases have been reported recently in Pacific Grove, most of them among adolescents. Health professionals are concerned the rise in cases happened because some people are declining the vaccination.

Symptoms of pertussis may include runny nose, sneezing and a mild cough, but develop into severe coughing fits after one or two weeks.
