Vaccination Against Whooping Cough

Whooping cough is a highly infectious and serious illness. It is recommended that all women be vaccinated during each pregnancy, in the third trimester – ideally between 28 and 32 weeks gestation.

Antibodies that form in Mum’s blood as a result of vaccination will cross the placenta and provide protection for your unborn baby until it is ready to receive its own vaccination at 6 weeks of life.

It is also recommended that all close family members and those involved in caring for the baby should receive the vaccine as well.

We hope you find attached Fact Sheet informative. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or concerns.
