Am I up-to-date on my Pertussis vaccinations?

Patient : I am 23 weeks pregnant and saw a commercial about Pertussis. I decided to check my vaccination records to see if I was up to date on all of my shots. My record reads as follows: DTP1- (2 months)- 10-26-94 (4 months)- 1-5-95 (6 months)- 3-16-95 DTP Booster- DTAP- (15-18 months)- 1-9-96 (4-6 years)- 6-8-99 Then I received the Tetanus Diptheria (14-16 years)- 10-10-05 My question is: Do I need to receive another vaccination for Pertussis before I give birth or during the post-partum period? I was not sure if I was up to date or not.
