Maternal Tdap Vaccination To Protect Newborns

In 2024, the Ministry of Health will provide Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Acellular Pertussis) vaccination to all pregnant mothers at all government primary health clinics. The vaccination is aimed at protecting newborn babies against the three highly infectious and serious diseases. Prof Dr Nazimah Idris, President of the Obstetrical & Gynaecological Society of Malaysia, joins the show to explain why it’s important for pregnant women to protect their infants with this vaccination, and to address any concerns about the safety of the vaccine.
