Submitted by Thurston County Public Health & Social Services Department

Olympia—Whooping Cough (also known as Pertussis) is at epidemic levels in Washington State and Thurston County has had more than three times the number of confirmed cases this year as last year.   Are you up to date on your Whooping Cough (Pertussis) vaccine?   Check with your health care provider.   If you do not have health insurance, your insurance does not cover the vaccine, or you cannot afford to be vaccinated, mark your calendar for Thursday, July 19.    The Thurston County Health Department and partners will be holding a no-cost immunization clinic, at the Union Gospel Mission Medical Clinic at 413 Franklin Street in downtown Olympia on Thursday, July 19th from 11:00 am until 7:00 pm.

No appointment is necessary; first come first served, until supplies run out.   For more information call 360-709-3080 or go to www.co.thurston.wa.us/health.

Let’s stop the spread of Pertussis.
