Recommend Pertussis Vaccination to All Pregnant Women

All women should get a Tdap vaccine during pregnancy...to reduce the risk of whooping cough in newborns.

Infants are at the highest risk of severe and fatal pertussis in their first 8 weeks...before they get the infant DTaP vaccine series.

Giving Tdap (Adacel, Boostrix) during pregnancy allows transfer of mom's antibodies to the baby before birth...and protects 9 in 10 babies younger than 3 months old against pertussis.
