I had mine a few months ago, I was a bit panicky as I hate needles and I got the combined Pertussis, Dip and Tetanus. It didn't even leave a mark, or a lump, not even red, no pain or swelling and I felt fine. My DH gets it every 5 years for work, his arm hurts when he gets his done.

Just a query on the whooping cough vaccine how often do you need together it, we had ours last August after my premmie bub was born so when would it be due again?

No, it lasts 10 years. But there has been some issues with efficacy ie. ppl who are vaccinated still getting whooping cough.

I had mine done this week (31 weeks and in UK where they recommend in third trimester) only sore around the injection site--which is little annoying when you need to sleep on that side. I actually had it 3 1/2 years ago as well since I work with young babies. They felt I should still have it now as the UK has had a bit of a break out.

Thanks ladies. Apparently DP reacts to the tetanus shot. Dragged her to the GP on Monday to have it done, stung going in (like most needles) but she managed to sleep on it that night and it wasn't swollen yesterday. I have found with needles if they are something I react to I get the nurse to do them deeper, they tend to react less that way. My GP got them to do that the other day so I think that's why the reaction wasn't so bad.

Do kids need to get it? I'm 35 weeks and wonder if my nephews 12 & 7 years old need to have it or do they get it with their children vaccinations?

They should be covered from their childhood vaccinations.
