How Much Does a Whooping Cough Shot Cost?

All adults, ages 19 and older, need the one-time whooping cough booster vaccine.  This whooping cough booster, referred to as Tdap, is a combination of a vaccine with diphtheria and tetanus.

While anyone can get whopping cough, younger children and infants are highest at risk, which can result in hospitalization or even death if left untreated.  Immunity from childhood vaccinations can wear off after five to 10 years, leaving adolescents and adults susceptible to this disease.  The current recommendation, for this particular vaccine, is for those between the ages of 11 to 64.  Adults older than 65 should receive the vaccine if they come in contact with an infant.
