Whooping Cough Hits Southern Nevada

AIR DATE: July 13, 2012

Whooping cough is on the rise in Southern Nevada.  According to the local health district, there have been 22 cases this year - about one-third in infants.  The disease is also rising nationwide.  So what are the warning signs?  Are immunizations or booster shots enough?  Are only kids affected, or should adults with cold symptoms be on the lookout, too?  We check in with a Southern Nevada Health District expert.
Guest: Nancy Williams, senior scientist at the Office of Epidemiology, Southern Nevada Health District
