    It's amazing that someone makes the effort to go see their dr and say hey I'm an adult, my boosters are due and get told not to bother.

    I don't get why people are questioning getting the vaccine? It's the new recommendation. Sorry but it just seems ignorant.

    I'll be doing whatever my doctor suggests. I was planning on getting whatever boosters I needed several months before TTC, but this thread is making me think that some boosters might be better done while pregnant...or maybe both, if possible. But without a doubt I will be getting vaccinated. Same with DP.

    This is from the NHS website - keep in mind, this is only one group of people, but 20,000 is a lot and it all looks good in terms of pregnancy and outcomes for the baby.

    "Pertussis-containing vaccine has been used routinely in pregnant women in the UK since October 2012 and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is carefully monitoring its safety. The MHRA's study of around 20,000 women vaccinated with Repevax found no evidence of risks to pregnancy or pregnancy outcome.

    Boostrix (similar to Boostrix IPV but without the polio component) is one of the vaccines routinely recommended in the US for immunisation of pregnant women. Experience in the US has identified no safety concerns with the use of the vaccine in pregnancy.

    There is no evidence of risk to the pregnant woman or unborn child with inactivated vaccines like Boostrix IPV. An inactivated vaccine is one that does not contain "live" vaccine. You can find out more about inactivated and "live" vaccines. "

    This also from the same source.
    "Babies born to women vaccinated at least a week before birth had a 91% reduced risk of becoming ill with whooping cough in their first weeks of life, compared to babies whose mothers had not been vaccinated"

    I would say because some of the other common vaccines ( like MMR) are specifically told not to be given to pregnant women and even state not to fall pregnant within 28 days of having the injection so as this is only a fairly recent recommendation for pregnant women to safely have the pertussis injection some people are quite wary as for the last 30 odd years we've been told not too - anything new involving pregnancy and babies usually can take a while to catch on and as pp said its only been just over 2 years so there are only a few studies ( so far all positive which is good)

    I understand why people question changes, but what we need to realise is that even if we haven't heard about it, these things are being tested all the time. They don't just decide to give out any kind of medication-especially to pregnant women without it being studied first.

    Here are a fair number of peer reviewed studies, some with very big cohorts, the thing is, the amount of vaccine reactions (judging from the reading I have done) is even less than they expected. They are saying it is very safe, and that there have been no safety signals raised with VAERS relating to this particular vaccine.

    Thank you! I'm looking to have this vaccine later in this pregnancy but really wanted some studies to read to set my mind at ease!

    @monnie24 in my opinion it is ignorant NOT to question medical science and gov't recommendations, they don't always get things right! But each to their own, I prefer a natural approach for the most part but I will still be getting the vaccine

    Most common folk have insufficient background knowledge and skills which would enable them to appropriately analyse information and effectively question the recommendations of people with 6+ years medical training... Most of the time they would just be embarassing themselves.

    Be educated yes... Question the recommendations of qualified medical professionals: good luck with that Mr and Mrs Smith!
