The rate of Valley Fever in San Joaquin County was five times higher in 2011 than in 2009, and Public Health Services wants residents to understand the cause and symptoms of the disease, as exposure is most common in the summer months.

The increase in the number of reported cases is a growing concern to local public health officials. San Joaquin County Public Health Services recorded 27 cases of Valley Fever in 2009, 46 in 2010, and 123 in 2011. To date this year, there have been 51 reported cases, according to county data.
