Whooping Cough Booster Recommended

Due to an epidemic of whooping cough (pertussis) affecting California, the Long Beach Health Department is recommending a booster shot (called "Tdap") for all children ages 11 to 18.  If your child has not had his or her shot, please contact your health care provider about getting one as soon as possible.

Parents can help to prevent outbreaks in schools by making sure their children's immunizations are up to date.
