GIFT (Give Immunity Fight Transmission)
Pertussis or Whooping cough is highly contagious. The bacteria spread from person to person through tiny drops of fluid from an infected person’s nose or mouth. It’s characterized by severe coughing spells, which can sometimes end in a “whooping” sound when the person breathes in.
Getting the vaccine is especially important for people who are in close contact with infants, who are too young to be vaccinated against pertussis, because babies, can develop severe and potentially life-threatening complications from whooping cough. Once these family members and care givers are vaccinated the baby is surrounded in a cocoon of protection against pertussis. An adult’s immunity to whooping cough lessens over time, so getting vaccinated and protecting yourself against the infection also helps protect your infant or child from getting it.
SCPHN offers a free Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine to newborn’s mother/father or care giver who is uninsured or underinsured individuals.
