From 16 December 2019 onwards, all pregnant women in The Netherlands will be offered a vaccination against whooping cough. This vaccination has been included in the dutch program for vaccinations. Whooping cough is a contagious disease that can have severe consequences for newborns. By vaccinating pregnant women, the child is protected immediately after birth. Vaccination is possible after 22 weeks of pregnancy. This is called the ’22-weeks vaccination’.
