San Luis Obispo Public Health officials warn there could be an outbreak of whooping cough within the next two years.
More than 9,100 cases of whooping cough or Pertussis were documented in 2010.
Whooping cough will typically rise and fall in three to five year cycles.
Infants younger than two months are the most vulnerable to the deadly disease.
Doctors recommend that women receive vaccinations in their third trimester of pregnancy.
