Pertussis (Whooping Cough)

Pertussis is on the rise. We strongly recommend that CPSP providers offer/refer pregnant patients for Tdap during 3rd trimester to protect newborns from pertussis. Visit CPSP website or to learn more about what your office can do to prevent pertussis.

Updated Influenza Toolkit

In December, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) updated its "Influenza Immunization during Pregnancy" toolkit. The toolkit includes the ACOG committee opinion on influenza vaccination during pregnancy, questions asked frequently by patients and obstetrician–gynecologists, and other resources for pregnant women and their providers.
