Yes.
Vaccination does not equal immunization, ESP for pertussis, which has the lowest efficacy rate of all vaccines.

Re: can my child catch whooping cough twice after vaccination

The vaccine for pertussis only lasts about 5-10 years. Even if you catch pertussis naturally, immunity wears off after about 10 years.

So, all new parents or women who plan to become pregnant should get a pertussis booster, because new infants are at the greatest risk of complications if they catch it.
