Skepchick.org and the Women Thinking Free Foundation are encouraging individuals to protect the ones they love by vaccinating themselves against pertussis, also known as whooping cough. Pertussis is an infectious disease that can be passed from adults to infants, who can experience serious and sometimes fatal symptoms.
A free vaccination clinic will run Saturday (September 4) and Sunday (September 5) in the Mall at Peachtree Center, at the International Blvd entrance. Cobb & Douglas Public Health staff will be available to administer the vaccine from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
McCoy says get your free vaccine at Dragon*Con, cats and kittens!
