  • Tdap vaccination during pregnancy to protect newborns from pertussis infection. [Journal Article]
  • AIAnn Ig 2018 Jul-Aug; 30(4):346-363
  • Mazzilli S, Tavoschi L, Lopalco PL
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is an increasing evidence that supports the safety, immunogenicity and effectiveness of Triaxis® e Boostrix® pertussis vaccination during pregnancy to protect infants before they receive their primary immunisations. In particular, both vaccines showed 90% effectiveness in the reduction of pertussis disease and hospitalization in newborns, with 95% effectiveness in the reduction of deaths. In Italy, the implementation of antenatal vaccination against pertussis is needed to narrow the gap between the recommendation of the PNPV and the prevention strategies actually offered by the public health system. To reach a good level of vaccine coverage, providers' recommendations are critical. Hence, extensive education of vaccine givers and all primary and secondary healthcare professionals who have any contact with pregnant women is needed.
