Diphtheria is an infection that can lead to difficulty breathing, heart failure, or even death when left untreated. Typically, symptoms arise within a few days after infection and include:
Thick gray membrane on the throat
Swollen lymph nodes
Rapid or difficulty breathing
What is Tetanus?
Tetanus, otherwise known as Lockjaw, is an infection that causes extreme and painful muscle contractions. Some people call it lockjaw because it can cause a person's neck/jaw muscles to lock up, making it difficult to swallow or open their mouth.
What is Pertussis (Whooping Cough)?
Pertussis is a highly contagious respiratory tract infection that can lead to serious complications in infants, such as pneumonia, seizures, brain damage, and more. The symptoms of whooping cough take 7-10 days to surface after infection and include:
