  • Tdap for Adolescents & Adults

ACIP states that children up to date on vaccines who receive a Tdap vaccine when 7–9 years old should receive another Tdap dose at age 11 or 12 years old. What about a child who is 10 years old?

Tdap vaccination for adolescents is recommended at age 11–12 years. A 10-year-old who is already up to date on diphtheria/tetanus/pertussis vaccines and gets a Tdap vaccine for any reason does not need to receive another Tdap at age 11–12 years.
