Yep. I've had my parents & my younger brothers (who still live with my folks) get boosters. My parents will provide occasional care for bub, & for me it's just not worth the risk.

I did... my husband, his mother, my mother and her husband all had a lot of contact with the baby within the first few weeks and were all vaccinated.
This was in 2009 and all of them had to pay; we offered to pay for the grandparents but they were happy to pay for themselves. Even if the scheme is now over I think the cost is negligible compared to the risk.

I thought they were discussing abolishing the free vaccines but I think my Dad's was still free in the last few weeks. DPs was definitely free recently. Even if it cost money, I still would have asked them to do it & i would have paid for it.
ETA: that article says they're ending it on 30 June.

Please correct me if I'm wrong (and I probably am lol) but can't vaccinated people still carry the virus and therefore pass it on?

I just rang DH up today while he was at his parents to remind him to tell his parents if they want to come see bub they will have to have there whooping cough Vax. I highly doubt they would have had any let alone a boster.

Hubby had it the other week and it was still free, my mil has had it and I am having a bit of trouble convincing my mother to get it but I am hoping she will change her mind when I tell her she won't be able to have contact with bub for the first two months, I am worried about how to ask friends to have it though but I am going to try my best to lay low and keep bubs at home as much as possible.
