If I got tetanus diptheria shot in 2008 should I update the tdap now?

recently changed docs. She didn't ask me about my immunization records but due to my daughter being tested for pertussis (diagnosed ultimately with pneumonia) wonder if I should go ahead to get the pertussis shot now even if I had the regular tetanus shot 2 years ago?

my daughter is fine, (Zpak rocks!) and I've just turned 40 so went to new doc yesterday (change of insurance) and mammo (still recovering from that one!). Also considering changing physicians already becuase this one took a phone call and left the room during my examinaiton and the CPT codes or whatever are not coming up online like she has them spelled out (there are letters behind each code) The vaccinations weren't even questioned and didn't feel the need to ask. Am I wrong for wanting to switch so quickly?
