Despite generally high coverage with DTP and DTaP, Pertussis, also known as Whooping Cough, is one of the leading causes of vaccine-preventable deaths world-wide. Most deaths occur in young infants who are either unvaccinated or incompletely vaccinated; three doses of DTP is necessary for protection against pertussis. Although ninety-percent of all cases occur in third world countries, Pennsylvania recorded 272 probable cases in 2005.
