BOOSTRIX VACCINE IS RECOMMENDED FOR :

Women who are not vaccinated in the third trimester and who have not had a dose of pertussis vaccine in the past 10 years should consider vaccination as soon as possible after delivery to reduce their risk of acquiring whooping cough and passing it on to their newborn child.

A booster dose is also recommended - for any adult who wants to reduce the risk of infection and hasn't had a pertussis booster in the last ten years.

Vaccination is particularly important for people living with or caring for babies under six months e.g. Fathers and grandparents. The vaccine should be given at least 2 weeks before contact with the infant.

Adults working with infants and young children <4 years of age and all health care workers should receive a dose of pertussis vaccine. A booster dose is recommended every 10 years.

Like all medications, vaccines may have side effects. Most side effects are minor, last a short time and do not lead to any long-term problems. Possible side effects of whooping cough vaccine may include fever, redness and soreness or swelling where the injection was given, nausea, headache, tiredness and aching muscles. More serious side effects are extremely rare but can include severe allergic reactions. Your GP can provide more information.
