Tdap Vaccine (Whooping Cough)‏ Provided for Free to Nannies and Caregivers

At the National Nanny Training Day/CT event Wee Care hosted in April 2016, the Stamford Board of Heath gave a presentation and Q & A about the Tdap vaccine. The vaccine protects against three potentially life-threatening bacterial diseases: tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).  

The Stamford Board of Heath provides the vaccine for free to nannies and caregivers or anyone giving care to an infant.

Please contact Elaine Braccia, R.N., Nurse Coordinator of the Stamford Board of Health to get more information or to set up an appointment (203) 977-4371.
