To all parents and guardians in West Vancouver School District:
Please find attached an important letter from Dr. Brian O'Connor, Medical Health Officer for Vancouver Coastal Health, regarding an increase in pertussis (whooping cough) in the VCH region since January 2012.
Pertussis is a very serious, contagious illness which is particularly severe for babies less than one year of age.
Free pertussis vaccine is now available for people who have not had a pertussis shot in the last five years.
Please click here to read the attached letter , where you will find details as well as links to more information.
Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
