My daughter had a baby 18 months ago and she would not let anyone visit hospital or home unless they had a whopping cough vaccine or booster shot
I believe it was called Tdap- Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis
Up until that time i never thought about getting the vaccine but quickly arranged the shot
Similar situation here.
Daughter and niece both have had two babies each over the last 4 years.
No Whooping cough vaccine, no see our babies.
I could have been a total dick and adopted a "no one tells me what I get injected with" policy but who wants to be a dick?
....and as my local GP told me, .....the incidence of whooping cough has been extremely rare for many years
"but do you want to be the statistical one in a million people who passes on this to an infant?"
I got the shot without reservation
