Important Information About Receiving the Tdap Vaccine

General Information on Dosing With Tdap

Some considerations for people getting Tdap include the following:
 
  • This vaccine is given as an injection into the deltoid muscle of the upper arm (where most immunizations are given). Most people need just one dose of Tdap, except pregnant women, who need a dose during each pregnancy.
     
  • Your healthcare provider should shake the vial well before injecting Tdap.
     
  • Multiple doses of this vaccine are not recommended in most situations. After an individual receives the Tdap vaccine, all future boosters should be given as the Td (tetanus and diphtheria) vaccine.
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to the dosage of Tdap, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
