Pertussis vaccination

  • Whooping cough (pertussis) is an extremely contagious infectious disease that affects the respiratory tract.
  • The disease can affect people of any age.
  • The whooping cough vaccination is the most important preventive measure against the disease.
  • You can get vaccinated easily and safely at the Herti pharmacy in Zug. Book your vaccination appointment now via our online booking system.

If infected with whooping cough, flu-like symptoms accompanied by a cough occur after two to three weeks. The initial mild cough intensifies and complications such as vomiting, pneumonia and seizures can occur. Healing then takes weeks to months.

The protective vaccination helps to prevent such a course of the disease. This is a combination vaccine (DTP vaccine). It protects against whooping cough and tetanus as well as diphtheria.

When and how often should you be vaccinated?

The vaccine should be administered five times during childhood. The first three vaccinations should be given at 2, 4 and 12 months. The additional two doses should ideally follow at 4 to 7 years and at 11 to 15 years.

Adults: If you are unvaccinated, the BAG recommends a single whooping cough vaccination at the age of 25. This vaccination corresponds to the necessary booster vaccination for people who have already been vaccinated.

Booster vaccinations every 10 years are recommended for people who are in contact with infants under 6 months of age and pregnant women.
