Whooping Cough Spreading In Reno County

Associated Press - June 30, 2015 7:05 am

The Reno County Health Department says it has received reports of 49 cases of whooping cough in the county.

The state has confirmed 18 positive cases.

Ivonne Rivera-Newberry, of the county health department, says the cases are random. One day, the county might get several reports and another day no reports come in.

The health department administered 127 free TDaP vaccinations during a clinic last week.

Health officials will meet again soon to decide how to get more vaccinations distributed.
