Explanation:
se trata de una vacuna contra esta enfermedad

"Agente inmunizante activo para la prevención de pertusis, difteria, tétanos, poliomielitis y las infecciones causadas por Haemofilus influenzae."

"Se ha estudiado la inmunogenicidad de las vacunas contra la difteria, tétanos, pertusis y polio oral en 1.408 niños sanos de los cuales 677 (Grupo I)
recibieron las vacunas DTP-polio oral a los 2, 4 y 6 meses, y además la vacuna contra la hepatitis B (HB) a los 0, 2 y 6 meses, haciendo coincidir la 2ª y 3ª dosis de vacuna contra la HB con la 1ª y 3ª dosis de vacuna DTP-polio oral. Los 731 niños restantes del total (Grupo II) recibieron únicamente las vacunas DTP y polio oral a los 2, 4 y 6 meses de edad."

Tos ferina / Pertussis


Explanation:
Hi Issa,

you can certainly use Pertussis if this is going to be read by doctors and medical staff in general BUT people won't understand it unless they have a medical culture. The popular term (and used by doctors when talking to people) is "tos ferina".

This is the glossary entry:

Hope it helps, Flavio

Tosferina


Explanation:
Estimada Issa,
Estoy de acuerdo con Flavio, unicamente sugiero que lo escriba como una sola palabra, tosferina, si su audiencia es mexicana; a continuación un ejemplo de cómo es usado el término y su referencia abajo.

Buena suerte y saludos de Oso :^)


"Inmunizacion contra la Difteria-Tétanos-Tosferina ... INMUNIZACIÓN CONTRA DIFTERIA - TÉTANOS - TOSFERINA (DPT). ... En la mayoría de los casos estos efectos se deben al toxoide de tosferina (pertussis)..."

Los alumnos mayores de 7 años deben ser inmunizados contra la tos ferina...


Explanation:
It's not easy to disagree with the almost omniscient Oso. But this time the reference he provides is at odds with the DRAE, which makes very clear it's a 2 word expression...
