Whooping Cough Outreach and Education

Program funded: 2012-2013

The Verdant Health Commission collaborated with community partners, including the Snohomish Health District, in 2012 to educate and empower our residents to get the booster shot Tdap, to help immunize against whooping cough, which was at epidemic levels in our state and county.

A Whooping Cough Toolkit was created to help businesses, churches and community groups communicate this need. Each organization could determine how the messages within the toolkit could be utilized and distributed within their existing communication channels. Questions about the toolkit should be directed to Jennifer Piplic at jennifer.piplic@verdanthealth.org or 425-582-8558.
