Per the CDC, Tdap vaccine can prevent tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. Diphtheria and pertussis spread from person to person. Tetanus enters the body through cuts or wounds. Adolescents should receive a single dose of Tdap, preferably at age 11 or 12 years. Pregnant people should get a dose of Tdap during every pregnancy, preferably during the early part of the third trimester, to help protect the newborn from pertussis. Infants are most at risk for severe, life-threatening complications from pertussis. Adults who have never received Tdap should get a dose of Tdap.
