  • I have seen it and just had my son monday. Wednesday before I went home they offered to give me the vaccine. I had already had it when I was in medical assisting school a few years ago so I didn't need it. Petrussis is very dangerous and as much as it hurts you to hear this, think of how much more it would hurt your child and you.

  • Yes, I've seen it and yes, I'd say get the vaccine. I got pertussis as an adult and yes, it was as painful as it sounds.
