In whooping cough child coughs excessively usually followed by vomiting. As cough is little chances of whooping cough is very less. With every vaccination dosage chances of infection become less. After all three dosage of vaccination protection rate is around 70%. Whooping cough can occur in vaccinated child but is less severe in nature. It seems she has got some viral infection, so be watchful for any deterioration of condition and complete the vaccination.
