DtaP vaccine and shedding; do I let recently vaccinated Grandma near infant?
Is there any chance of her upcoming vax (12/3) shedding?? Do I have to restrict her from visiting?? I am aware that there is shedding with the Varicella Vax (i am lucky..i am old enough to have had the wild strain when I was 5yr old..waaay back in 1980!!)
I just dont know about this DtaP vaccine...
I DO KNOW about the (absurd) Varicella Vax, (upwards of 6 weeks).....and you better believe...i saw dried blisters on our neighbors granddaughter, I didnt ask..but I betcha they vax her for preschool, and...well I absolutely was,not letting Audra anywhere near DS, no touching , no coughing on him.
I just am fairly protective of DS with that silly/absurd Var.Vax because of the shedding...and because he still is very young (9mo).
Lastly...yes I (very happily!!) EBF, on cue, and I am very mindful of my nutrition, veggies, veggies, lean protein, vitamin C. I intend to BF for, as,long as,DS is still interested, and that gives him a great start to life as,well !!!
