Whooping Cough Vaccination for Pregnant Women
All Pregnant women between 28 and 38 weeks of pregnancy are eligible and should be vaccinated. The optimum time to develop antibodies is between 28-32 weeks.
In addition, pregnant women beyond 38 weeks, including new mothers who missed the opportunity to be vaccinated during pregnancy and who have not previously been vaccinated, should be vaccinated to provide protection from pertussis, any time until their child receives their first vaccination (this is usually when the baby is 2 months old).
If you fall into an eligible category, please ring us now and make an appointment with one of the Nurses: 01934 628118
