Whooping cough is a highly contagious and serious infection that spreads easily from person to person through coughing and sneezing and is most dangerous for infants younger than age 3 months. Many babies who get whooping cough are infected by older siblings, parents, or caregivers who might not even know they have the disease.

This animated public service announcement video highlights the importance of getting vaccinated to help prevent whooping cough in infants for all parents, siblings, and caregivers. The vaccine that helps prevent whooping cough also protects against tetanus and diphtheria.
