Ingrid Vandebosch, Wife of NASCAR Champion Jeff Gordon, Models Perfect Stance Against Pertussis Following Son's Birth
Date:8/19/2010

NEW YORK, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Ingrid Vandebosch, wife of NASCAR champion Jeff Gordon, is modeling perfect new mother behavior by getting her Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis) booster vaccine to help protect herself against pertussis (whooping cough) and reduce her risk of transmitting the disease to her newborn son.

Now that I know I can decrease the risk of spreading pertussis to Leo by getting an adult pertussis booster vaccine, I got vaccinated. And I encourage other new parents to speak with their health-care providers about getting an adult Tdap vaccination," said Vandebosch.

Vandebosch and Gordon became involved with the Sounds of Pertussis Campaign after learning how vulnerable newborns are to getting the highly contagious disease from their own parents. Researchers have found that when a source of a baby's pertussis could be identified, family members were the source for up to 80 percent of pertussis cases in infants and, more specifically, parents were the source 50 percent of the time.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends all adults and adolescents between the ages of 11 and 64 -- especially those who have close contact with an infant—be immunized with a Tdap booster. The CDC also recommends that if a new mother
