Jul 19, 2012

State officials are trying to contain a whooping cough epidemic spreading throughout the state.

Washington has seen more than 1,130 cases of whooping cough this year, up from 117 cases during the same period last year.

In Snohomish county alone, the number of cases of whooping cough rose to 340 on June 1 this year.

In response to rising levels of whooping cough, the Edmonds Mobile Medical Clinic will provide a one-day immunization clinic for uninsured individuals on July 24, from 1 – 5 p.m.

Those eligible for free immunizations are adults, 18 years and older, who are without Medicaid, Medicare or health insurance of any kind.

Individuals who should be immunized are those who have not had a TDaP booster in the past ten years, and individuals who do not know if they have ever had a TDaP immunization.

There is no charge for the immunization, and individuals will be served on a first-come, first-served basis – while supplies last.

The July 24 one-day immunization clinic is an expanded community outreach of the Edmonds Mobile Medical Clinic which provides free basic health care services to uninsured individuals in our community every Tuesday morning from 8 – 11:30 a.m.

Under the non-profit charitable organization Puget Sound Christian Clinic (PSCC) and with support from the Verdant Health Commission, this weekly free clinic is located at the Edmonds United Methodist Church 828 Caspers Street, Edmonds, WA 98020.

If you’d like more information, please call the Edmonds United Methodist church office at 425-778-2119 or email office@edmondsumc.org.
