Pertussis for pregnant women (taken from NHS Choices website)

Getting vaccinated while you’re pregnant is highly effective in protecting your baby from developing whooping cough in the first few weeks of their life.


The immunity you get from the vaccine will pass to your baby through the placenta and provide passive protection for them until they are old enough to be routinely vaccinated against whooping cough at two months old. 


We will vaccinate you between 16-32 weeks. It is your responsibility to make an appointment with either Patsy or Karen at Reception.

We run a weekly nurse-led Baby Clinic on Thursday between 11.00am - 12.30pm. Immunisations are available and advice and queries can be answered here. Book as usual through reception.
