Can the tdap vaccine cause congestion and stuffy nose?

Yes. The vaccine can cause these side effects. The reason is it's causing the body to release cytokines, chemokimes, and various proteinacious substances which in turn cause tissue to react certain ways. It's all perfectly natural though in the perfect world we would like to engineer a vaccine without any signs or symptoms of the disease itself!
No. The tdap and dtap vaccines do not cause a stuffy nose nor a runny nose. It's likely a coincidence that a person has a stuffy nose around the time of a tdap vaccination.

If my infant had his tdap vaccine, can he still get pertussis?

Depends. The strength of immunity derived from any vaccine depends on completing the primary series (all the doses) and having appropriate boosters. Even then, if we have emergence of more pertussis, as is happening in California and Washington, heavy exposure may overwhelm that protection. The series will generally end the risk of severe disease or death, but there is no 100% protection from that disease. Read more...
