Abstract

Healthcare workers who received the tetanus‐diphtheria–acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine were surveyed about adverse events. Local adverse events were more common among women and among those who received the Tdap vaccine less than 5 years after they had received the tetanus‐diphtheria vaccine. Systemic adverse events were more common among healthcare workers aged less than 30 years. These findings provide guidance for counseling of healthcare workers who receive Tdap vaccine.
