Whooping cough is caused by bacteria. The contagion occurs via droplet infection (coughing, sneezing etc.). Due to lapses occurring in vaccination in recent years, a noticeable increase in the incidence of whooping cough illnesses has been observed, especially among adults. With a single vaccination you can reliably protect yourself.
Should it prove necessary, tetanus, diphtheria, polio and whooping cough can be vaccinated through a single injection.
