17 Jan UPDATE: Whooping cough epidemic
Whooping cough is at it again this year. We blogged about the epidemic last year, and now Iowa is taking action.
As of Wednesday, “Iowa officials are making a one-time booster shot for whooping cough a requirement for school enrollment,” reported the Sioux City ABC affiliate. The new requirement applies to rising seventh graders, and any other students born after September 15, 2000.
