We have the option of vaccinating bubs with the new Gastro vax, but I'm still very up in the air about it. The facts I know (and correct me if I am wrong and please add too!):
1. It is a LIVE virus taken orally twice (2 months after one and other). And for a while after each time you need to wash your hands quite a bit, esp after changing nappies etc (although we do anyway!) as it can be contracted by yourself.
2. It's $120! I know that's lame but it's a lot of money.
3. 85% of people who have the vaccine don't get the virus.
4. It doesn't cover all gastro bugs.
So if he gets vax'd and his cousin doesn't and she contracts it from daycare, how susceptible would he be to getting it?
I would be really interested to see views on this SPECIFIC vax and what people think about it. Is it the best thing to do??? Thoughts please!!! Thanks in advance!
