The Tdap vaccination, sometimes known as dTap, is an acronym describing the collective vaccines preventing tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis in adolescents and adults. Tdap is a very common vaccination that prevents the spread of common childhood and adolescent diseases like whooping cough and tetanus. The Tdap was licensed in the United States in 2005. Generally speaking, Tdap vaccines are required for some work and travel restrictions, as well as school admissions in North Carolina
Carolina Express Clinic is equipped to handle most common shots and vaccinations in an extremely clean, comfortable and sterile environment.
Whooping Cough Vaccines for Pregnant Women
General guidelines on prenatal care in the US state that, if there is an urgent need for tetanus protection during pregnancy, a Td vaccine should be administered. If there is not an urgent need and the woman has previously had a tetanus vaccine, Td vaccination should be delayed until the postpartum period. Postpartum women are recommended to receive Tdap prior to discharge after delivery who have not received Td or Tdap vaccine in the last two (2) years. It is recommended by some that pregnant women who have never received tetanus vaccine (i.e., never received DTaP, DTP or DT as child or Td or TT as adult) receive a series of three (3) Td vaccinations starting during pregnancy to ensure protection to the mother and baby from these diseases.
