Whooping Cough Vaccine

Home > Vaccinations and Immunisations > Routine Vaccinations > Whooping Cough Vaccine

Whooping cough also known as pertussis is a highly contagious bacterial infection of the lungs. It can be severe and may require hospitalisation for young children and babies. The vaccine is recommended as a single dose for expectant mothers between 16 and 24 weeks of pregnancy, as it has been shown to be highly effective in protecting children from whooping cough until children are old enough to get their own vaccination at 2 months. In some countries, close family members are also advised to get the booster if they are in close contact with a newborn baby.

As there is no whooping cough-only vaccine, a vaccine called Boostrix IPV is used, which also protects against Polio, Diphtheria, and Tetanus.
