Ideally It should be given between 27 to36 weeks of pregnancy

DPT between 27 to 36 weeks to prevent child to get whooping cough

Boostrix is funded from the second trimester of every pregnancy and recommended to be administered from 16 weeks. Administration of Tdap from 16 weeks of pregnancy allows time for the woman's immune system to produce antibody protection against pertussis

27 to 36 weeks of pregnancy and to child 3 doses and booster dose ( Govt hospital practice ) given to prevent child or as immunization schedule.
