Can someone help me find reliable info about this whooping cough "epidemic"
My MIL brought this to my attention yesterday and said her friends daughter is making everyone that wants to see her newborn get a booster for pertussis. My MIL said she was running out to get a shot so she could come see my new baby (due in Sept) but I told her not to just yet. I tried doing research but I'm not sure if I want to make my family go get booster shots. I'm not 100% sure I'm fully vaxing this kid yet but now I'm so confused!
I'm reading that pregnant women should get the shot but I'm not a fan of getting anything while pregnant. However when this baby is born my DD will be just starting preschool and now I'm scared she might bring home whooping cough (amongst other things) and that my baby will get very sick. IDK what to do. Where can I find reliable info? I'm new to the whole delayed and/or non-vaxing stuff as I fully vaxed my DD.
