There are two vaccines that can provide protection against pertussis: Tdap and DTap.
Tdap, or Tetanus, Diphtheria, & Pertussis
Tdap is a newly approved vaccine for adolescents and adults that protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and Pertussis. This is the first vaccine available to protect older children and adults against pertussis (whooping cough).
