Diphtheria, Tetanus, and Pertussis Vaccination: Information for Healthcare Professionals

DT Vaccine Discontinuation

In 2023, Sanofi Pasteur, Inc. will stop manufacturing the diphtheria and tetanus toxoids absorbed vaccine, commonly known as DT.

CDC currently recommends DT for infants and children who should not receive acellular pertussis-containing vaccines. Discussions are underway regarding updated vaccine recommendations for these children.

Diphtheria toxoid-, tetanus toxoid-, and acellular pertussis-containing vaccines help protect against diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis, but they will not prevent all cases.
