Introduction

For the purpose of providing protection from the diseases of diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus, there is an important vaccine for the children as well as adults, which can be given anytime during the life after 10 years of age. This will allow the people to develop immunity against these three disease conditions to a great extent. The time for vaccination is to be strictly followed if the immunity is required to be developed to the right extent.

This injection of tetanus toxoid, diphtheria toxoid and pertusis vaccine is used as vaccine against the three disease conditions where the patients are provided immunity against them even after they grow older. Although, booster doses are also important for providing the complete immunity, these vaccines are having potential benefits due to their ability to be given in elderly people and at a very later age, anytime after 10 years of age.
