ATLANTA (WKOW) -- More than 21,000 people had whooping cough last year. That's the highest number in six years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Health experts aren't sure what's behind the increase in cases. The vaccine against whooping cough is considered highly effective in kids.
Whooping cough starts like a cold but leads to severe coughing that can last for weeks.
