Four More Whooping Cough Cases at Alamance Co. School
Seven total confirmed cases, nine more suspected
It's not yet clear how whooping cough, or pertussis, got into the school, Shapley-Quinn said. However, none of the students at the school were given exemptions for vaccinations.
"A lot of people might think that the reason there's a pertussis outbreak is that children haven't been vaccinated appropriately. In fact, 100 percent of the children in B. Everettt Jordan have been vaccinated," Shapley-Quinn said.
