Whooping cough (also known as Pertussis) – between 16-32 weeks pregnant
Whooping cough is a very serious infection. Getting vaccinated while pregnant is highly effective. It protects your baby from whooping cough in the first few weeks of life.
If you aren’t vaccinated and have a chronic health condition or a weakened immune system, you may be at increased risk of complications.
For more information about the whooping cough vaccine visit the NHS choices page.
Have a chat with your midwife or GP for more information.
