Ah pertussis, yellow not blue, cold is blue... I like pertussis, that one is causing a big stir in the US these days since they discovered the vaccine only works until a person is about 17 (if that), quite a few cases were found, only good thing is that in adults it is only a bad cough and not the killer it is in kiddies who are protected by the vaccine (except for the ones that have psycho parents that don't get them vaccinated...). Think the new vaccine that is approved for adults is out now, not 100% though.
