Pertussis Update

Due to a continuing increase in the concern for pertussis in our area, Polk County Public Health would like remind community members about the importance of vaccination and early testing for pertussis. Any person with a new cough lasting more than a week should be tested, even if you have been vaccinated or have had pertussis before. Some people can still get pertussis even after receiving the vaccine. In nearly all of these cases the symptoms are much less severe and last for a shorter period of time. An outbreak is defined as two or more cases from different households clustered in time and space.

Polk County Public Health's Immunization Program is already looking toward the start of the 2015-2016 school year. Please see the following flyers for the 2015-2016 school requirements:

Polk County Public Health is excited to partner with Family Building Blocks, Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency, Oregon Child Development Coalition, Willamette ESD and other in home service agencies in the Polk Partners Home Visiting Network.
