Outbreak Alert:

 Whooping cough (Pertussis) is highly infection and can be very serious for babies and young children. Whooping cough can cause severe coughing attacks and may lead to serious complications, like pneumonia and brain damage.

In response to the latest outbreak, one of the best ways you can help is to ensure both you and your baby are vaccinated against whooping cough (pertussis). 

Getting vaccinated between 28 and 38 weeks of pregnancy means you will give your immunity to your baby, which will provide protection for them when they’re most at risk (in the first six weeks after birth, before your baby can get vaccinated). Research shows vaccination during pregnancy is safe and effective.

After your baby is born, they then need to be vaccinated at six weeks, three months and five months, with booster shots for older children at four years and 11 years of age. It’s also important to check that your baby’s brothers and sisters have up to date whooping cough vaccinations – a GP can provide a catch-up does if required.

Vaccination for all children is free, and women in their last three months of every pregnancy can now also have free vaccination from their GP.
