Pertussis or “Whooping Cough” update:

From: Michelle L Breuer RN, BSN; Crawford County Public Health

 As some of you may know, Pertussis or “Whooping Cough” continues to be in our community and our surrounding communities as well. Due to this illness continuing to circulate we felt it was important to provide further educational materials to all of our Crawford County Schools to disseminate to teachers, staff, parents, etc. Click any of these three links for more information:

As a reminder Tdap and DTap vaccine is available through Crawford County Public Health or other county public health offices at no charge at this time, regardless of insurance status. The vaccine is also available through individual medical providers. If someone is unsure if they are up-to-date with their vaccines they can contact us and we would be happy to check the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) for them.
