Michelle Razore and Heidi Bruch “fight back” against Perri Tussis, a giant replica of a Bordetella pertussis bacterium, which causes the disease, pertussis, more commonly known whooping cough. Razore and Bruch, whose babies nearly died from pertussis last year, were in Times Square at the Sounds of Pertussis® Campaign exhibit during Pertussis Awareness Day. The Campaign encourages all adults in close contact with babies to help protect themselves against pertussis by getting an adult Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis) booster vaccine, so they don’t get sick and spread the disease to their babies.
