5-10 years: For adults, the overall recommendation is every 5-10 years. The current DPT shot is tdap and covers pertussis or whooping cough. It is recommended at least once from age 10-11 years. It is also recommended again if you are caring for a baby under a year of age, if you have not had it in the past year.
