Vaccinating pregnant women and household contacts of infants is recommended for pertussis prevention. In structured abstraction of Web sites of Michigan birthing hospitals, we found only 36% contained any pertussis prevention information, and it usually required a specific search for pertussis. Hospitals should emphasize pertussis prevention as part of general information for expectant parents.
