Protect your child even before your baby is born: Ask your provider about the whooping cough vaccine. The whooping cough vaccine is also known as Tdap. It protects you from whooping cough (pertussis). It also protects you from two other illnesses: tetanus and diphtheria. And it will help protect your baby from whooping cough as soon as he or she is born. You should get the Tdap vaccine early in your third trimester. This is between 27 weeks and 36 weeks of pregnancy. That’s true even if you have had the shot before. Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Building your Health Home
