Expectant mums get whooping cough jab
The worst outbreak of whooping cough for 20 years has prompted health officials to offer pregnant women vaccinations to protect their unborn babies.
Starting yesterday, mothers-to-be who are 28 weeks or more into their pregnancy are being offered the jab.
Nationally, nine babies have died as a result of whooping cough this year.
According to the Health Protection Agency, the South West has been particularly badly affected by the outbreak which saw cases of the disease go from 112 in 2008, down to 81 the following year, 44 the year after, to 65 in 2011 and then to 843 this year until the end of July.
