Attention Prenatal Care Providers:
CDPH Survey on Tdap vaccine for Pregnant Women
As part of efforts by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) to prevent infant deaths due to pertussis, recommendations to vaccinate pregnant women with tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine were issued in July 2010. Click here to view the recommendations.
In addition, in June 2011, the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practice (ACIP), voted to recommend that pregnant women receive Tdap.

CDPH would like to gather information about the use of vaccines in OB-GYN patients, including whether or not pregnant women are receiving Tdap in California as well as data on barriers to vaccinating pregnant women.
