giving pertussis (Tdap) and flu vaccines to pregnant women

You'll see a new emphasis on giving pertussis (Tdap) and flu vaccines to pregnant women...to protect moms AND their newborns.

Tdap (Adacel, Boostrix) used to be given to the mom right AFTER delivery if needed. But that leaves newborns unprotected until they start getting pertussis vaccination at 2 months of age.

Most serious cases of pertussis in infants occur before 2 months.
