Whooping Cough Case Study

I am writing you for an assignment on behalf of an issue I think needs to be addressed; Whooping Cough, also known as Pertussis. This issue is important and needs attention because many kids and babies die from whooping cough each year. If parents don’t get their children vaccinated they could get whooping cough and get very sick or pass it on to other children who could get sick. If small children or infants get whooping cough they could die because they don’t have as strong immune systems; same with elderly people. I care about this because it is very sad to see kids die and the percentage of deaths per year could rise. This matters because we need to keep whooping cough away. We need to do our part in saving children from getting pertussis.
