Our doctors receive many questions from patients about the Tdap vaccination, and which vaccination is right for them. Here are some of the common questions that we hear, as well as some answers:
Children often receive the vaccination when they are 11 or 12 years old, but this can vary by child. Anyone who has not received the vaccination when they are a child should get it as soon as possible, and all health care professionals should have it before working with patients. In addition, pregnant women should receive the Tdap vaccination during every pregnancy, as unborn children are at high risk for pertussis.
As with all vaccinations, there are some minor risks associated with the Tdap vaccination. Mild reactions can occur, such as soreness, pain or headaches. Anyone who has a known allergic reaction the vaccination should not get it at all.
