Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) -- Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis (DTaP) Vaccines: What You Need to Know

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page Vaccine Information Statement (VIS) educates people about the DTaP vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus (Lockjaw), and pertussis (whooping cough). It describes symptoms, transmission, and effects of each disease. It explains why people should get the DTaP vaccine, who should be vaccinated and when, and who should not get the vaccine or should wait. It outlines protection for older people through a vaccine called Tdap, which is similar to DTaP. It identifies risks and side effects, distinguishes between common, uncommon and very rare problems, and explains what to look for and what to do in the event of a serious reaction. Contact information for the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) is provided, along with tips for how people can learn more about the DTap vaccines.

The English-language VIS was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. The translations are provided by the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) and its partner organizations.
