New guidelines for the Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine

Guidelines from the Center for Disease Control Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices advise that pregnant women receive the Tdap vaccine to protect against Pertussis – also known as "whooping cough."

Newborn babies are vulnerable to getting whooping cough because they cannot get vaccinated against Pertussis until they are two months old. Pertussis can cause serious and even life-threatening complications in infants, especially within the first six months of life.

The Tdap vaccine is administered just after 28 weeks of gestation.

It is recommended that women receive the Tdap vaccine during every pregnancy regardless if they had the vaccine in a previous pregnancy.

We do not administer the vaccine in our office, but you can get it at the health department, local pharmacy or your primary care doctor.
