T-DaP (Tetanus, Diptheria and Pertussis) and Tetanus Vaccines

Unfortunately, we do not regularly offer the T-Dap vaccine, however, Appalachian District Health Department offers them and they can help determine if you need to receive this vaccine. 

TDaP was licensed in 2005. It is the first vaccine for adolescents and adults that protects against all three diseases. A single dose of TDaP is recommended for adults 19–64 years of age to replace the next booster dose of tetanus and diphtheria toxoids vaccine. (After this one time booster, you will return to the Td booster.) TDaP is also recommended for adults who have close contact with infants less than 12 months of age.  Fee for the TDaP will be billed to the State Health Plan and Medicare for 100% coverage.
Td (Tetanus and Diphtheria) vaccine is recommended every 8 to 10 years and if free.  If you cannot remember when you had your last vaccine, you are probably due one.  

For more information on TDaP, call Appalachian District Health Department at (828)264-4995. Visit CDC's National Immunization Program website at www.cdc.gov/Features/AdultVaccines/.  Go to Health Promotion's Calendar for the next scheduled T-dap vaccination clinic.
