Pertussis

Pertussis, also know as whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory disease.  Pertussis is known for uncontrollable, violent coughing which often makes it hard to breathe.  Pertussis can affect people of all ages, but can be very serious, even deadly, for babies less than a year old.  The best way to protect against pertussis is by getting vaccinated.

Head Lice

Adult head lice are roughly 2-3 millimeters long.  Head lice infest the head and neck and attach their eggs to the base of the hair shaft.  Lice move by crawling; they cannot hop or fly.  Head lice infestation is spread most commonly by close person-to-person contact.
