An Old Friend is Back: The “What” and “Why” of Pertussis Reemergency
While the introduction of pertussis-containing vaccines has resulted in a significant reduction in pertussis disease, incidence has increased in recent years and disease burden has shifted to different age groups. This presentation will review the changing epidemiology of pertussis and factors contributing to current trends, including the transition from whole-cell to acellular pertussis vaccines and the impact of vaccine hesitancy. Vaccination is the most important tool for pertussis prevention and control and recommendations have evolved in response to changing epidemiology. This presentation will also review the evolution of current recommendations and their role in maintaining community immunity, preventing disease among infants who are at highest risk for severe disease and preventing outbreaks in school settings.
