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
