Whooping cough is a highly contagious bacterial infection. It causes coughing bouts that can last for months and can make babies and young children in particular very ill. The vaccine was developed in the late 1930s after a six-year study by Leila Denmark in America. It was combined with tetanus and diphtheria vaccines from 1942.
