Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis Vaccination: Information for Healthcare Professionals
One of the Recommended Vaccines
Diphtheria toxoid-, tetanus toxoid-, and acellular pertussis-containing vaccines help protect against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, but they will not prevent all cases.
You Call the Shots
You Call the Shots is an interactive, web-based immunization training course. It consists of a series of modules that discuss vaccine-preventable diseases and explain the latest recommendations for vaccine use. Each module provides learning opportunities, self-test practice questions, reference and resource materials, and an extensive glossary.
The “Pink Book” contains the most comprehensive information on routinely used vaccines and the diseases they prevent.
Six reference appendices include: vaccine minimum ages and intervals, current and discontinued vaccines, vaccine contents, foreign vaccine terms, and more.
