An outbreak of whooping cough has Colorado health authorities to urging people to make sure their vaccinations are up to date. In the last two weeks of October, 100 cases of whooping cough were reported in Colorado, according to the state health department. The state has had epidemic levels of whooping cough, or pertussis, in the last two years, including 1,116 cases so far this year.
