The Tdap immunization provides protection against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. While children are routinely vaccinated against these diseases, it is recommended that adults receive a one-time dose of this vaccine to boost their immunity. This vaccination is particularly recommended for those who have close contact with infants and young children.
