Does anyone know anything about a test to see if you are immune to whooping cough?
My mum won't have the vaccine because she is sure she will have a bad reaction - fair enough, and said she thinks she is immune to WC because she's never had it before (this doesn't seem logical to me). She said a woman at her work said you can have a blood test for antibodies to prove if you are immune.
A quick consultation with Dr Google suggests that the test will only show antibodies if a recent infection has occurred. Can you even have natural immunity to WC if you've never had it?
I'm just trying to find out more info.
