Whooping cough (pertussis) is a highly infectious disease spread by coughing and sneezing. It can be very serious for children and young babies.

They can catch it from family/whānau members so make sure your whānau and extended family are up-to-date with vaccinations.

Vaccination with Boostrix in Year 7/8 is free for students. It’s also free when pregnant, and at age 45 & 65 years.

Boostrix also offers protection against tetanus and diphtheria.
