Abstract

Clinical specimens from 9 states during 2008-2010 were tested by PCR for Bordetella pertussis and Bordetella parapertussis. Of the positive samples, 13.99% were identified as B. parapertussis. It was concluded that B. parapertussis infections are more common than previously realized and contribute to cases thought to be vaccine failures.
