    Default am i being unreasonable - whooping cough vax

    With the recent rise in whooping cough cases i am more than a little worried about it. Is it unreasonable to tell family and friends that if they have not had a whooping cough vax in the last few years, and refuse to get one, than we do not want them visiting before our babies first round of needles. to be honest I'm not worried about annoying people by telling them this. other friends of ours have done it and i wasn't offended or anything, but I'm already a parent to a 2 year old plus expecting another in october. But just wondering ... am i being unreasonable?

    I'm thinking of doing the same. Our baby was stillborn last year and I'll do anything to protect our next one, I don't care who I upset

    No not at all unreasonable. We didn't do this ourselves but think its a good idea. A lot of adults haven't had a booster for ages.

    Thanks ladies just the reassurance i need!
    I am terrified of something happening to this baby. It's been a very difficult pregnancy, getting to 27 weeks feels amazing after all the problems, so i don't want to risk anything if i can control it.

    MaximumStarlight I'm very sorry to hear that. Big hugs

    Nope. We told our parents that they had to get the WC vax if they wanted to see their grandchild as we have an outbreak where we live. My MIL tried to say we were being OTT but DH knocked that argument on the head quick smart.

    It costs 50 bucks and last 5+ years. Seriously if they want to see the baby it's not a difficult thing??

    Absolutely not unreasonable. I have a GC coming in January myself and think everyone should be immunized for whooping cough.

    Not unreasonable. I've just emailed close family explaining that the advice from all our medical professionals has been that in the first 6 weeks for visitors to be vaxxed. If not thats five too but they will need to wait until the baby is 6 weeks. It's an epidemic, it kills and it's winter. Don't feel bad asking.

    Don't feel bad at all! My gf is due in a few weeks and has just asked me and I am on the way to the docs right now to get the vax. 😊

    Nope...definately not unreasonable Luv. It's just not worth the risk IMO.

    And they'll need to give the vaccine time to kick in too. Not exactly sure of the timeframe?? Maybe 2 wks???
