Daptacel Uses

Older Children and Adults

This vaccine is not recommended for use in adults or children ages seven years or older. For such individuals, the Tdap vaccine (the adult version of Daptacel) or the Td vaccine (which does not contain the pertussis component) should be used, depending on the person's age as well as other factors.
 

Off-Label Uses

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend Daptacel for something other than the reasons discussed in this article (this would be known as an "off-label" use). At this time, however, there are no universally accepted off-label uses for Daptacel.
