39 suspected with whooping cough in Missoula.

https://www.abcfoxmontana.com/missoula/people-in-missoula-may-have-had-close-contact-with-whooping/article_7c66430a-6d40-11e9-96c1-7f15b13e9c7a.html

It's more than measles going around. Possibly 1,000 exposed.

1. I am not sure

With the whooping cough being totally attributable to lack of vaccinations, I had it as a child and have had it again as an adult.When I asked my Dr about that he said it is possible to get it more than once.

3. Thanks for the OP Delmette.

Being from Missoula...I think the numbers of affected folks will go way higher than those cited in this article. The schools in town are on high alert.

4. I think so too. It's scary stuff.

I checked out getting the shot because I really don't know if i ever got the shot as a child. It takes three weeks to really be in effect. I'll head to the pharmacy tomorrow.
