Whooping cough vaccination campaign

Following advice from the joint committee on vaccination and immunisation, an urgent vaccination programme for pertussis (whooping cough) for pregnant women has been agreed between the Department of Health, NHS Employers and the General Practitioners Committee of the BMA.

A national enhanced service scheme has been agreed for practices to undertake the vaccination of pregnant women from 1 October 2012. Full details of the agreement can be found on the NHS Employers website.
