TDAP Vaccine

This vaccine provides protection for three illnesses — tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough. This combined vaccine is recommended for all young people ages 11-18 and may be required for anyone going to college and graduate school. This vaccine is also suggested for women after giving birth and for anyone who is around babies — childcare workers, grandparents, siblings, etc.
