Get Your Whooping Cough Vaccine

Posted on May 29th, 2024

Whooping cough (pertussis) cases continue to increase and babies who are too young to start their vaccinations are at greatest risk.

If you are pregnant, you can help protect your baby by getting the whooping cough (pertussis) vaccine. Vaccination during pregnancy boosts your antibodies which are then passed to your baby to help protect them from the day they are born.

For further advice on getting your whooping cough vaccination, speak with us or your midwife.
