Put a Brake on Pertussis !

Would you ride in a car with worn out brakes?
Would you let your baby risk it?

We urge all adults to be vaccinated. By being vaccinated the risk of transmitting the infection to young infants (who are not adequately immunized) is severely reduced.

Milestone Pediatrics is able to vaccinate any adult who will come forward. Presumably, there are no contraindications for an individual who wants to be protected. Check with your insurance carrier about coverage. We will charge $75 for the vaccine at our office.
