    I've heard immunity varies, that it can last from 2-10 years so I think some doctors feel it doesn't hurt to get it again.

    The CDC recommends pg women get the vaccine near the end of each pregnancy, so as to pass on some immunity to each baby.

    The problem is mainly the other components of the vaccine. Australia doesn't have whooping cough on it's own. Only as a trivalent vax.
    The currently Australian guidelines are that pregnant women should have it if their last was was over 5yrs from the EDD.
    I'm not sure if the US has it as a monovalent vax or not but I'm assuming the tetanus is why we don't have it every pregnancy.

    Well FIL says he's happy for us to just not allow BIL to see the baby if he doesnt get organised & have the vaccine, so thats good news. Theres plenty of time for bub to have his/her uncle as part of his/her life so we just wont be taking the risk until bub has had its needles.
