D0H confirms 4 cases of Pertussis in infants Submitted by NM DOHISanta Fe mally protected until they have they have not previously re- The New Mexico Depart- ment of Health (NMDOH) has re- ported that within tile past month, 4 infants in New Mexico have been hospitalized with confirmed pertussis (whooping cough). The infants (each under 4 months of age) are from Dona Ana, Sandoval. and Valencia counties. There have been no pertussis-re- lated infant deaths in New Mexico since 2005. "In order to protect New Mexico's infants, all prenatal care providers need to assure that preg- nant women have received a Tdap vaccine," said Cabinet Secretary for the New Mexico Department of Health, Dr.Catherine Torres. "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) now rec- ommend that pregnant women who have not previously re- ceived a Tdap vaccine get one on or after 20 weeks of pregnancy. If for some reason the vaccine is not given during pregnancy, it should be given immediately af- ter delivery; and all of an infant's caregivers, including parents, sib- lings, grandparents and others around the baby, need to make sure they are up-to-date on their pertussis vaccination. In order to prevent infections in newborns, we must first prevent the infec- tion in mothers and the infant's caregivers. " [n all four of the households, not all off the caregivers had. received Tdap vaccine, putting the infants at risk. "Infants have the highest mortality from pertussis and are also at risk for extended hospi- talization," according to Dr. Torres. Infants commonly get per- tussis from an infected family member or other caregiver. In- fants can't begin receiving per- tussis vaccine until 2 months of age and are not considered mini- Little League 2012 Schedule June 1 TB: Mavs vs Redsox 6 PM MJL: Dbacks vs Pirates 7 PM June 4 TB: Dbacks vs Mavs 6 PM MJL: Pirates vs Nationals 7 PM June 6 MNL: Pepe vs Charles 6 PM MJL Nationasl vs Dbacks 7 PM June 8 TB: Redsox vs Dbacks 6 PM MJL: Pirates vs Dbacks 7 PM June 11 TB!

There- fore, the best way to protect in- fants from pertussis is to make certain that everyone caring for or spending time with a new- born is up-to-date on pertussis vaccine. Pertussis, also known as "'whooping cough," is a serious, highly contagious bacterial res- piratory infection. In older chil- dren and adults, the early symp- toms of pertussis consist of runny nose and mild cough with little or no fever, which after several days develops into a se- vere cough. Coughi'ng spasms and vomiting after coughing are common. Sometimes people with pertussis will produce a "whoop" sound while trying to catch their breath following a coughing fit. Infants, however, may only present with gagging, gasping, abnormal breathing and little or no cough. Infants are it high risk of hospitaliza- tion, complications and death from pertussis. Tdap is a pertussis vaccine for adolescents and adults that was licensed in 2005 in the United States. Recommenda- tions from the Centers for Dis- ease Control and Prevention (CDC) state that all adolescents and adults should receive Ine dose of Tdap. In July 2011, CDC issued recommendations to vaccinate pregnant women who have not previouslyhad Tdap with the vaccine after the 20th week of pregnancy. In Febru- ary 2012, CDC issued additional recommendations that all adults over the. age of 65 receive a dose of Tdap. CDC also recommends that all healthcare personnel, regardless of age, receive a dose of Tdap as soon as feasible if Make Voting an Event.
