Quick Reference

A suspension of killed Bordetella pertussis administered in three doses in the first 6 months of life provides a high degree of protection against pertussis. The vaccine has some adverse effects, but the risks of these are considerably less than the risks of death or dangerous complications associated with pertussis, especially in infants. For international recommendations, see http://www.who.int/vaccines/en/pertussis.shtml; the US recommendations are similar.
