All of us at the March of Dimes were deeply touched and concerned by the explosions at the Boston Marathon. Our prayers and sympathy go out to the victims and their families. As March for Babies approaches, we want you to know that the safety of your family is our top priority and we are working closely with local law enforcement to make sure your event is safe and secure. Babies still need your help and we hope you will join us as we celebrate our wish for a healthier future for our nation’s children.

We’re letting parents and caregivers know how important it is that they get vaccinated with an adult Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis) booster vaccine.
Pertussis is a highly contagious, vaccine-preventable disease that can last for weeks. The disease is usually more severe in babies and young children, who will often experience severe coughing that can be followed by a “whooping” sound as they gasp for air.
