Yep, wouldn't risk it. There is too much of it going around. My neighbour contracted it from working in office buildings - he had been vaccinated so therefore got a milder dose (just had a funny cough that wouldn't go away). I was chatting to my GP about vaccinations for my 4 month old babies - apparently the first vaccination at 6 weeks only offers 5% protection for bubs - they don't start to build up any kind of real immunity until after their second shot... scary.

I had it before I fell pregnant because I worked in a medical centre but I made DH, my mum and in laws get vaccinated because there were a few cases of whooping cough in my area.

Yeah I had mine done after I had DD 3 years ago and DF has just recently got his as this will be his first child.

I read that it's not free in SA. Anyone know if this is true? My SIL had to pay $80 after her daughter was born. I read online that SA said there isn't enough research into it being effective for new parents so they won't fund it. Am I totally wrong? Lol

I would rather offend a couple of people, who I quite frankly do not care about, than run the risk of my son getting seriously sick. IMO I don't want to be around anyone who doesn't understand this or respect our beliefs and values.

Yes I did. Any precaution for my bub.
Heaps of kids have whooping cough ATM including my nephews and nieces.

My rule when DS was little was that if you were sick, don't visit until you are better and I will be doing that again. I know you can be contagious before showing symptoms, but that made me feel more comfortable.
