    I had mine done after we had DS. DP didn't! But he certainly will be before this one is born. It's free and if it prevents us or our kids from getting sick from it then I'm all for it. Its pretty scary to think about. Whooping cough in babies is heart breaking to see - as well as deadly!!

    Yep I got it when DS was born.

    Hubby had his booster last week and I'll get mine after bub arrives. All grandparents will be vaccinated too.

    Both hubby and I have had whooping cough before and I can't even imagine having a baby going through that, it was just awful.

    We offer the vaccine to all mums prior to discharge where I work

    I'm lucky I was vaccinated, I looked after a woman who coughed all over me just prior to getting my bfp, she tested positive for WC


    Bfp!!! Little bug due 25/6/12

    Yes, DF and I both got vaccinated shortly after DS was born, as did my mum.

    We were asked again this time about it, but given it hasn't even been two years yet, we don't require new boosters.

    Yep, grandparents were done too, no way we were going to risk DS's life for the sake of a quick shot (and I HATE needles!!) We live in NSW. And I know people that have had It recently.

    Yes, both DH and I had our boosters after DD was born. We also had all the grandparents have boosters.

    Our doctor recommended it as there has been alot of cases of it in Tasmania in the last 6 - 12 months.

    Most people I know who have had children have got it done as a fairly routine thing after having a baby. Unfortunately cases of whooping cough seem to be on the rise in Australia, and it can be very dangerous (fatal) for a young baby.
    Same, dh and i got vaccinated shortly after the birth of ds.
