Tdap Titer - More Information

The Tdap titer is a blood titer test that measures levels of the tetanus and diphtheria titer and the pertussis titer.

The Tdap blood titer checks for immunity that is typically conferred on a person after they receive the Tdap vaccine. The Tdap vaccine has largely replaced the Td vaccine as the standard in immunization schedules given the added protection that it offers in a single dose.

One other reason while some people prefer the Tdap titer test over getting revaccinated with the Tdap immunization is that the Tdap vaccine is quite painful when administered. Some describe the feeling of the Tdap vaccination as being punched in the arm which makes getting the Tdap titer alternative more palatable.

Sometimes, Tdap and DTaP are acronyms that are used interchangeably to represent the combination of blood tests or vaccines representing tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis but that is not entirely accurate. In the medical world, DTaP typically refers to the DTaP vaccine which is given to younger children. On the other hand, Tdap usually refers to the Tdap vaccine which is given to children over the age of 11 and adults. Because the Tdap and DTaP vaccines are slightly different, they should be thought of differently.

To get a Tdap titer near you, order online and get tested at the Quest Diagnostics lab that you selected. Once your Tdap lab test report is ready, it will be available for download. As can be seen on the sample Tdap lab report above, the components of the Tdap will report IgG antibody blood levels as numbers which can be compared against the reference range provided by the lab.
