MDCH Urges Adults to Get Tdap Vaccine
Last week, on July 28, the Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) issued a news release encouraging adults to get the tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (Tdap) vaccine after three cases of tetanus infection were reported in Michigan.
MDCH urges teenagers and adults to get vaccinated with Tdap vaccine, which protects not only against tetanus, but also diphtheria and pertussis (whooping cough).
Because immunity to tetanus decreases over time, most adults need to get a booster shot every 10 years to stay protected. Adults who haven’t received Tdap vaccine should receive Tdap instead of their next regular tetanus booster. more
