My friend just emailed me to let me know that she and her son have been exposed to pertussis. They're vaxed and have not had contact with the sick kids in about a month. We saw my friend and the kids shared a water bottle last week. Is there any chance that my dd would get sick?

They were exposed a month ago?  I wouldn't worry about it for a second.  You've probably been unknowingly exposed to pertussis many times.  Exposure does not mean you're going to get it.
