    TDAP (sometimes called DTAP instead) is not the default vaccination done in general.

    Many docs (following their professional society guidelines) are only giving one TDAP during adulthood and otherwise just tetanus/diphtheria.

    That is still the guideline referenced by my professional society (which is the American College of Physicians, the largest single-specialty physicians' group). The ACIP adult vaccination guidelines seem to have been last updated in the 2010/2011 document.

    The plural of anecdote is not data.
