If you had a pertussis shot 2 years ago, won't you pass antibodies through to bub in breastmilk?

Thanks everyone for your replies. I think I'll get a letter from my ob at my next appt and insist that the gp give it to me.

Interestingly in the US, the CDC says you should have it for every pregnancy regardless of last dose.
It won't do you any harm to have another, chances are those you might get some localized injection site reaction (hot red lump) but that goes down and doesn't cause any systemic issues, just literally a pain in the arm.

Havnt read all replies but i had mine at 34 weeks no probs. ob said it should provide some cover to bubs along with bf. also reccomended that other peeps who will have lots of close contact with bubs get it done too ie partners, parents inlaws.

I just found two articles on my work journal database (I'm a Registered Nurse working in research programs) saying it is safe during pregnancy and recommended as it increases pertussis antibodies in infants until they are able to have their first at 6wks. As another pp said it also recommended vaccination during each pregnancy to increase the transfer to the infant. Have printed them and will take them to my gp next week so I can get mine done now (am 31wks) rather than waiting til after bub comes.

I'm entitled to my own opinion am I not? Many before u have tried to convince me otherwise when it comes to autism.and they didn't get anywhere so don't waste your time.and as far as my comment about avoiding sickly people,I should have worded it differently.i actually avoid people in general when I have a newborn.and everything ive done this far has worked with my first 4 so I will carry that on with my next child.

You're entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts.
Doesn't bother me what you do, but it does bother me when people try to present their opinion as fact when in fact, it's not at all.
