Babies usually get Pertussis from adults and aren't fully protected with vaccine until they are 6 months or so.


If you don't plan to vaccinate, please disregard this post and back away slowly. 8)

Reading an article on that prompted me to write this, Deb.

Here in Columbus, there has been a lot of issues with it, especially because we have a lot of immigrants that never got the shots and come from areas that didn't have them, either..

And I almost lost my son due to him getting the vaccine in 2007.  He is allergic to it .     It is really tough being a parent and trying to make the right decsions.  Either way you go ....  it is a risk.
