Whooping cough vaccine during pregnancy

Posted by: oliverbarnard - Posted on:

Whooping cough (pertussis) rates have risen sharply in recent years and babies who are too young to start their vaccinations are at greatest risk.

Pregnant women can help protect their babies by getting vaccinated – ideally from 16 weeks up to 32 weeks pregnant. If for any reason you miss having the vaccine, you can still have it up until you go into labour.

We recommend that pregnant women get vaccinated.
