Vaccinations - TDaP

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

This is for UK applicant's eyes only. By looking at the vaccinations needed, I have all apart from TDaP (Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis).

I have spoke to my GP and local Travel Clinic and neither are sure of this combined vaccination. I have had all 3 of these vaccinations separately and am up to date. However, I heard a horror story that this combined 3-in-1 vaccination must be had. Apparently, having these vac's separately aren't good enough?

Does anyone know the deal with this vac?

Would appreciate any help.

Thanks,

Steve

Well, Tetanus and Diptheria were both within the last 10 years (7 years ago).

However, Pertussis was 2 months after I was born and a booster 2 months later. When I spoke to the GP and Travel Clinic they said, they don't issue pertussis unless you're a baby and there is no such thing as an adult booster. Are they shoving me off and I need to get another booster for this?

Thanks for the speedy replies!

Nick-Nich can correct me if I'm wrong, but you should be fine if you obtain a Td, and since you've had one of those in the past ten years, you shouldn't need one at all?

In the US, we do now offer a pertussis booster Tdap to adults and teenagers (this was a more recent health change: see here http://www.cdc.gov/pertussis/about/prevention/index.html). We discovered that many adults were passing the disease onto vulnerable newborns that hadn't had the vax yet. But just because we offer this vax, doesn't mean the UK will.

For instance my fiancé's record of Tdap (of the pertussis kind) was given to him as a toddler. He went and received a Td for his medical - it fulfills the requirement.

Thanks for the help. I'll go to the medical with my records so far telling them the situation of the pertussis vac and hopefully that will be enough for them to sign off all vaccinations.

Thanks again guys!

Fiancé had his medical last week. He had the pertussis and booster as a toddler with the t and d. He went to his gp a few months ago and according to the record they gave him, he got diphtheria, polio and tetanus at that time. It looks as if it was all in one vaccine but I'm not sure. He had no problems at the medical and should be all set for aos.

Same problem here...they do an adult one that's for pregnant women which is the one that they're getting for me on prescription as I never had the pertussis as a baby. The travel nurse had to get advice on it from the director of public health.
