Pertussis Protection for Infants - Vaccinated Adults

TBDHU recommends a Tdap vaccine for all pregnant people as well as adults who will care for the infant to protect the unvaccinated infant against a pertussis infection. Learn more about the vaccine, the protection it provides, who is eligible and how to get the vaccine here.


Although babies are born with the reflexes and instinct to breastfeed/chestfeed, you may have questions about breastfeeding/chestfeeding or require some assistance along the way.

Many individuals need help with breastfeeding/chestfeeding. You can get help from your health care provider, breastfeeding/chestfeeding support services like clinics and from peer support groups. 24 Hour telephone breastfeeding/chestfeed support is available from Telehealth (1-866-797-0000 or TTY 1-866-797-0007). Keep looking for the support you need!

TBDHU Lactation Services can help. Public health nurses with specialized training offer pregnant or breastfeeding/chestfeeding people with babies of any age breastfeeding/chestfeeding education and support.

Lactation services are available with a public health nurse who has advanced lactation training. Appointments are offered onsite, in your home, virtually or by phone. For more information, call TBDHU Lactation Services (807) 625-8827 or Toll-free 1-888-294-6630 or contact us by email at:
