I recently met with my GP to get my annual flu shot. He asked if I had had whooping cough and I replied, "Yes, I think so as a child, amny moons ago!" He said "Right! in addition to the flu shot you are going to get the latest "quintupleantigen" shot, which amongst other things will protect you against whooping cough, especially important when your granschildren come to visit".
I thought they I should relay this on to all you other COPDers as a bout of WC with dickie lungs could prove fatal.
