Pertussis incidence highest among infants younger than 2 months
April 27, 2017

ATLANTA — Research presented at the 2017 Epidemic Intelligence Service Conference demonstrates that the age group most severely affected by pertussis are infants younger than 2 months of age, comprising 38.7% of all pertussis cases between 2000 and 2015.

Researchers also suggest that although pediatric pertussis cases resulting in hospitalization and death have declined, there is a possibility that this is caused by a higher rate of reporting in non-severe cases.
