Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis

Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (Whooping Cough) are relatively rare in Australia, largely because of comprehensive childhood vaccination programs. (1, 2, 3).

However, because of a lack of booster shots, as much as half of all adults are not immune to these diseases.

Those most at risk of any of these diseases can include

  • Emergency service personnel, including police, fire, ambulance and remote rescue
  • Healthcare workers
  • Those working with soil - landscaping, maintenance
  • Those at risk of skin-penetrating wounds - construction & trades, animal workers
