I teach in a public school where a student was just diagnosed with Whooping cough (student had been vaccinated). Student was NOT in my class, but many of my students are coughing A LOT. I have been vaccinated too. The principal (being an idiot) said to the entire staff that anyone who has a compromised immune system was supposed to stay home 17 (!) days to be safe. As much as I would love to stay home 17 days, I emailed my Primary Dr. and she isn't concerned at all.
Any ideas/thoughts? I am not in treatment yet. My #'s are "steady"; I go for blood work on Tue. but don't see my Oncologist until end of October.
