We do not require it because of the research and efficacy…  Pregnant women are to get it with every pregnancy but we consider that personal and we don’t track it or require it.

Subject: [MCOH-EH] Updated Pertussis Vaccination


Do any hospitals/med centers have policy on re-immunizing HCWs with Tdap sooner than the usual 10 year cycle? CDC doesn’t seem to indicate the usefulness, but our OB feels that the pertussis immunity wanes within 2 years, so we’re debating whether we need to consider a policy for re-immunizing, esp in OB and Peds.

Any evidence (literature or expert guidance) to back it up would be appreciated!
