Marion County Public Health is teaming up with Americares and Sanofi-Pasteur to offer free TDAP vaccinations to area families. The vaccination covers tetanus, diptheria and pertussis, or whooping cough. Judi Van Hulzen, with Marion County Public Health, says that the season for pertussis is coming upon us very soon. She says infants and young children can often times have a very tough time with it, especially when compared to adults. For more information and to see if you qualify for the free booster, contact Marion County Public Health at 828-2238.
