I have phoned the number you gave for IFM but got a recording saying that messages left may not be picked up. I therefore emailed them but have not yet received a reply, I am not hopeful as their web site says "There is currently no single vaccine available for Pertussis".
Expert:  Dr. Hoellering replied 2 months ago.

I am Dr.Customerand pleased to help you. Please phone IFM again on Monday, , maybe the office hours where over already.

There is indeed no single vaccine available vor Pertussis, but it is completely safe to vaccinate against Diphteria and tetanus at the same time. Even if you had the latter not long ago. This is how we do it all over Europe since more than 6 years, and we have this multivalent vaccine available.

Have a nice trip to Australia!

A friendly feedback by clicking 3 to 5 stars would be appreciated.

Expert:  Dr. Hoellering replied 2 months ago.

You have read my answer but didn't rate positively yet. If there is any question still open, feel free to ask!

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I have again tried to phone LFH (during office hours) and now get the message "SORRY THIS MAILBOX IS FULL"
Expert:  Dr. Hoellering replied 2 months ago.

I am very sorry that the service in your area is so poor! I would ask your GP for help, he should have the trivalent vaccine or at least know where to get it.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I did that before coming to you!
Expert:  Dr. Hoellering replied 2 months ago.

Dis you ask for a vaccination ONLY against whooping cough or were you ready to take a multivalent vaccine?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I didn't specify - at the time I was unaware that it was only available as a multivalent vaccine.
I will try them again.
Expert:  Dr. Hoellering replied 2 months ago.

This is what I wanted to suggest.
