In brief: Antigens

Dtap is for infants up to 7 years- the diphtheria toxoid and pertussis antigens are stronger. Tdap is for children over 10 and adults- the tetanus toxoid is the same, but the pertussis antigen and diphtheria toxoid are lessened to prevent serious reactions while boosting immunity.
