Whooping cough

The Guardian also reports this BMJ paper, which finds a high incidence of whooping cough among children taken to their GP with a persistent cough. Although vaccination against it is common, vaccinated children can still get a milder form of the disease. The BMJ paper, by Anthony Harnden and colleagues from Oxford (and elsewhere) is in fact a BMJ Online First paper.
