In brief: Depends

If you received the TdaP, or the more current whooping cough shot that contains the tetanus toxoid you are protected.
Since that is the only whooping cough shot now given to adults I expect that you did. The tetanus booster within that shot gives you 10 years of protection from date of administration.
