Question: 

Is it possible to get the pertussis vaccine seperately from tetnus(my tetnus is less than 5 years old and I react badly, lots of complicated health problems and allergies) but I need pertussis as I work with newborns and have immune problems myself as well. Can I order it somehow for my doctor?

Answer: 

The pertussis vaccine is not available on its own in Canada.  We recommend that you discuss your concerns further with your doctor or a public health nurse.
