Midwifery students: You are working as a midwife in an antenatal clinic. One of your roles is to promote vaccination against pertussis (whooping cough) for pregnant women. You have had a few pregnant women decline vaccination. This concerns you as you know that if the pregnant woman is immune to pertussis that passive immunity is passed to her unborn baby to protect them against pertussis when they are newborn until thery are able to be immunised themselves.
