Whooping cough diagnosis at Higgins Elementary

Dear Parent/Guardian:

We have recently learned that a student at your child's campus has been diagnosed with Pertussis (Whooping cough). While most school aged children have had the vaccine, there remains a small risk for contracting the virus. If contracted, vaccinated children normally have a less severe case of Pertussis than a child that has not been vaccinated.

The initial symptoms of this highly infectious virus are cold-like symptoms with a mild fever, runny nose, and cough. After 7-10 days, the cold-like symptoms begin to fade and the coughing becomes worse. As a result of inflammation and narrowed airways, the cough is a dry, hacking cough producing periods of uncontrollable coughing which makes breathing difficult for the child. It may take several weeks for your child to completely recover from Pertussis.
