ANNOUNCES NATIONAL INFANT IMMUNIZATION WEEK La Paz County- April 23 – 30th is Na- tional Infant Immunization Week. It is an appropriate time to ask that parents/ guardians check their children’s immu- nization records to see if they are up to date and to check their own and other family members immunization status as well - especially if they are living (or are in close contact) with an infant un- der the age of 6 months. Children less than 6 months of age are too young to have received their primary 3 doses of Tetanus/Pertussis/Diptheria (DtaP), so they are at risk for severe illness and death if they are exposed to pertussis. When this occurs, it can almost always be traced back to a parent, sibling, or close contact that has recently been ill. Pertussis (also known as Whooping Cough) can present as a mild illness in adults and older children, but for infants it can be deadly. It has become common practice for hospitals to immunize new mothers immediately after childbirth and to recommend all family members A���� 20, 2011 (including grandparents) who will have close contact with the baby to be im- munized as well. This process is known as “cocooning,” based on the fact that if the baby is too young to receive the vaccine, it can still be protected by the immunization of everyone else around it. Children’s immunizations are free up until the 19th birthday. The Health Department also has the adult Pertussis immunization available for adults at a $40.00 fee to cover the cost of the vac- cine.
