    gosh now I'm feeling super anxious about it. my dh got the vax a couple of years ago before we went travelling overseas and when he went to get it (not realizing he'd already had it) the gp said there's no need as he's covered. now I'm not so sure and think maybe he should get it again. what are people's thoughts?

    I know the vax lasts for a few years but I'd rather be over the top and ensure he's fully immunized than risk it. esp as he's the one going back to work after a couple of weeks and will be in contact with people. I'd hate hot him to get it due to decreasing immunity and bring it home!

    argh, paranoid now :/

    If he had it more than 5 years ago I would say do it again to be sure. I think the booster lasts 5-10 years but that is a huge range.

    first round of travel was in 2012 then we went again in 2014. I think the WC vax was received in 2012. I might mention it to him again tonight and say just to get it. I'm not comfortable taking risks and would rather go
    over the top with protection than leave ourselves open to risk.

    I was told it only last 2 years yesterday by a midwife but she also said a lot of other slightly wrong things so I would best check and double check his status with it.

    Also bear in mind at least in WA for most of last year you couldn't get the booster unless you were high risk. I tried all year but it wasn't available.

    Doesn't sound right to me. Nobody would be covered if it only lasted 2 years.

    Sorry to crash the thread, just wondering, for those who had this policy how did you go about letting people know? A post on FB? Or did you tell people individually and if so what did you say?

    I'd like to have a no vax no visit policy this time but DH is resistant, he says it's rude, I don't think there's anything rude about protecting your child but I'm unsure how to word it. I know I'm going to get resistance from both of our families.

    I think u need to have the mind set of this is non negotiable, then there's basically no if ands or buts.
    We've had a very long road ttc so even before we conceived I'd made it clear ppl would be getting the vax or they can't see the baby. I had inlaws say smart little remarks ect but that's ok I'm not budging so take ur pick. I must admit it is easier if ur partner is by your side and de inforces it.
    After doing IVF multiple transfers and egg pick ups I just said that if I've had to go through years or needles, pain heart ache ect the least everyone can do is get a needle.
    There's no way I'm risking my babies life for the sake of offending other ppl.
    I said politely to ppl we are doing no vax no visit, explained why and everyone surprisingly got their needles.
    I also work in a medical centre and have seen how common whooping cough is at the moment it's everywhere you'd be surprised.
    I would stick by your guns because if something did happen you would never forgive yourself

    Stand your ground. You are your babies advocate. It's up to you to implement this.

    Qld is the same. I had to get boostrix flown up from Melbourne to cover my DH and my mum. Couldn't get any for my dad or extended family, there's just none available in qld. So as much as I want to implement no vax, no visit, I'm finding it incredibly hard to ask people to get vaccinated when I know that they actually can't - qld chemists have been out of stock of several months.

    It's really scary and they're blaming an outbreak for the lack of stock but if they don't sort it soon things are going to get a lot worse.

    NB GPs have limited stock for pregnant women.

    Also have been given conflicting advice re how long it lasts. 2-10 years. My OB suggested 5.

    I wish there were more clear info available and an Australia-wide stock not a state-by-state thing.

    Also remember a vaccination is no guarantee they won't get it. I have 2 friends who have had WC despite being vaccinated.

    So in addition to the vaccine, I'll be ensuring I keep my newborn pretty sheltered for the first few months, avoiding playgroups etc, carrying them close to me and not being handled other than immediate family/close friends.
