Whooping Cough (Pertussis) Vaccination for Pregnant Women
The Department of Health announced on Friday 28th September 2012 that pregnant women are to be offered vaccination against whooping cough. They are recommending that, for the time being, all pregnant women should get vaccinated against whooping cough from 20 weeks pregnant. This is a new recommendation, as there has been a sharp rise in the number of whooping cough cases in the UK. For more information about Whooping Cough please visit http://www.nhs.uk/.
