Push to vaccinate expectant mothers
Posted by Staff
The Wall Street Journal reports:

Pregnant women should be vaccinated against whooping cough during each pregnancy to protect their infants, as public-health officials warn of a steep rise in the disease, according to new recommendations from a federal advisory committee.

Federal guidelines currently call for all adults, including pregnant women, to receive the whooping cough vaccination one time.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said more than 41,000 cases of whooping cough were reported to the agency last year, the highest level in more than 50 years and more than double the 2011 total. The disease was linked to 18 deaths in 2012, with the majority of them babies younger than 3 months old.
