We have recently updated our pertussis reference page.

Pertussis (commonly known as whooping cough) is a highly contagious respiratory disease. Pertussis is usually more serious in infants under 6 months, but it can affect people of any age.

The updated page includes new details on pertussis epidemiology and more information about transmission. We have also published detailed guidance and recommendations for primary course and booster vaccinations across age groups.
