Tdap pregnant

Are you pregnant?
Per the CDC, your doctor will recommend you
get the TDap Vaccine.


There are two Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis (whooping cough)) vaccines available in the US – Adacel® (Sanofi Pasteur) and DAPTACEL® (GlaxoSmithKline).  Both package inserts state the vaccine has NOT been tested on pregnant women and it is unknown if they will cause fetal harm yet doctors are prescribing them during pregnancy.  If your baby is prone to a vaccine injury, you will not witness a change in your child’s development after birth because the damage happened in utero, and your child was “born that way.”
