The Riverside County Public Health Department is reporting an increase in Whooping Cough (Pertussis) in Riverside County and other areas of California. Parents and others who are in close contact with young children are encouraged to be immunized against this disease, which can be fatal in children.
Each college's Student Health & Psychological Services office will offer the vaccine to uninsured students and staff and their adult family members at cost, which is $45. Call for an appointment (Moreno Valley College 951-571-6103; Norco College 951-372-7046; Riverside City College 951-222-8151)-—it takes about 20 minutes to complete the paperwork and be immunized.
