Whooping cough, or pertussis, is back. According to the Lake Cumberland District Health Department, there are two probable cases of pertussis within Taylor County.
Letters are being sent home with students from the affected school about the situation, and students and faculty at schools within the county are encouraged to receive a pertussis immunization if they haven't already. In general, most children receive these immunizations during their first five years and then again when they are 10 years old.
