Why your family should get vaccinated
Also known as whooping cough, pertussis is a contagious respiratory disease that can cause serious illness, especially in infants too young to be fully vaccinated.
To prevent pertussis, infants should be vaccinated as soon as they are old enough. Older adults who were vaccinated should get boosters as the vaccine fades over time.
How we can help
We recommend that those over 18 should get a booster vaccination immediately if they haven't received one and/or have contact with infants.
We can administer infants their fourth DTaP dose at 18 months and the fifth dose at 6–7 years, and we can give first-time and booster TDaP vaccinations to older children and adults.
12% of teens 13-17 are not fully vaccinated against whooping cough (pertussis)
