The Clinical Takeaway: Pertussis vaccination is unfunded but still important

The Clinical Takeaway: Pertussis vaccination is unfunded but still important


In this episode:

– With the covid vaccinations taking centre stage many vaccines have been overlooked particularly the privately funded ones.
– GPs can build pertussis reminders into our workflow in templates for care plans, ante natal shared care, age-related check-ups, for the high-risk groups of patients, travellers and into our recall systems.
– You can improve pertussis vaccination rates by having the vaccine on hand and offering it opportunistically
– Patients respond well to GP recommendations for vaccinations, so we just need to specifically advise and offer pertussis vaccination
