Expect Pregnant Women to Get Tdap Vaccine With Every Pregnancy

You'll see more focus on giving pregnant women Tdap vaccine (Adacel, Boostrix)...to decrease 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 start getting pertussis vaccines.

Vaccinating women with Tdap during pregnancy allows immunity from the mom to be transferred to the baby before birth...and reduces the newborn's risk of pertussis (whooping cough).
