Diphtheria and pertussis spread from person to person. Tetanus enters the body through cuts or wounds. Each of these conditions can lead to serious health problems.
Adults who have never received Tdap should get an initial dose of Tdap, and should receive a booster dose every 10 years, or earlier in the case of a severe and dirty wound or burn. Booster doses can be either Tdap or Td (a different vaccine that protects against tetanus and diphtheria but not pertussis).
