Wondering if anyone could assist with some information on the Hep B vaccine that is apparently given at birth? I have just started doing my research into child vaccinations.
I am generally pro-vaccination, in particular whooping cough which is experiencing a little bit of an epidemic at the moment with a lot of children and adults unimunised. However, I'm being open minded and looking at each vaccine one by one to make the decision rather than just giving a holistic OK to everything they suggest.
So, I'm up to Hep B. Both me and DH are vaccinated against Hep B - does this have any impact on bub's immunity to Hep B? Or like chicken pox, whooping cough etc even if I am resistant or vaccinated bub will need to develop their own via vaccination? Just thought this may be in a different category as its a different type of disease.
