Pertussis/Whooping Cough Infographic

The pertussis vaccine has been in the news lately because of what has been described as “fading protection”. It is important to note that “Among children who get all 5 doses of DTaP vaccine on schedule, effectiveness is very high within the year following the 5th dose — nearly all children (98 out of 100) are fully protected.” It’s especially important to get a booster if pregnant.
