There are health risks in Sydney after a pertussis cluster was terminated at a school in the city’s eastern suburbs.

Parents have been told to be warned but not worried that a number of students at Bronte Public School became ill with goat cough.

At least three children have been diagnosed with the potentially fatal disease in an area where the rate of vaccination is considered to be dangerously low.

“It’s important to vaccinate and keep the diseases under control. It’s worrying that more and more people do not think it’s harmful or even dead for children,” worried mom Kat Nunnerley told 7 news.

News Corp reports that, while the parent announced parents, she failed to inform the health authorities.

However, parents do not seem to be worried that the process disappeared through the cracks. They’re just glad they knew about the outbreak.

Jumping cough begins as a cold but turns into a seriously painful cough.

Commonly known as a 100-day cough, health experts say this is timely reminder to ensure that vaccinations are up to date.
