Pertussis Vaccine

I’ve seen a couple people post about wanting adults who will be around their precious bundles of joy to get the vaccine, and I found this and so it may be helpful to some with family members who aren’t on board.

TDAP is covered as preventative care for adults under Obamacare under the recommended schedule (1 shot ever 10 years to boost immunity).

All Health Insurance Marketplace plans and most other private insurance plans must cover the following list of vaccines without charging a copayment or coinsurance when provided by an in-network provider. This is true even for patients who have not met a yearly deductible. Doses, recommended ages, and recommended populations for these vaccines vary:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Herpes Zoster
  • Human Papillomavirus
  • Influenza
  • Measles, Mumps, Rubella
  • Meningococcal
  • Pneumococcal
  • Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis
  • Varicella

I hope people find this helpful.
