When Should Adults Be Vaccinated With Tdap? The CDC recommends the Tdap vaccine for all adults ages 19 and older who have never received the vaccine, especially: -Health care workers who have direct contact with patients -Caregivers of infants under 1 year old, including parents, grandparents, and babysitters -Pregnant women in their third trimester (ideally 27th through 36th week), even if they have previously received Tdap vaccine; this can protect a newborn from whooping cough in the first months of life. -New mothers who have never received the Tdap -People who travel to countries where pertussis is common -You may be given the Tdap vaccine if you have a severe cut or burn and have never received a dose before. Severe cuts or burns raise your risk for tetanus. The Tdap vaccine can be given any time of the year. Only one shot is needed. It may be given with other vaccinations. Tdap can be given regardless of the interval since the last Td vaccine was given. The Tdap vaccine can be used safely for those ages 65 and over, according to 2013 CDC recommendations. Who Needs a Booster Shot? Tdap is typically given once during a lifetime (except during pregnancies). However, it is recommended that booster shots of the Td vaccine be given every 10 years to adequately protect you against tetanus and diphtheria.
