Tdap is a combination vaccine that protects against 3 bacterial infections in a single injection: Tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis. The 3 vaccine components are tetanus (T) and diphtheria (d) and acellular pertussis (ap), which provides protection against pertussis infection.

Since 2005 a dose of Tdap vaccine has been recommended for any previously unvaccinated postpartum woman and all household members who come into contact with newborns to protect newborns from neonatal pertussis ("whooping cough"), a serious and potentially fatal disease that continues to affect infants in the US. 

We offer this vaccine between 28-30 weeks of pregnancy.
