Trying to Get Pregnant

Parent Immunization Help Please!

There are so many articles on how a parent not having immunizations is harmful to the baby, I understand that what with the antibodies of the mother being the only thing protecting the child for the first six months. My problem is this, whooping cough is making a comeback due to adults not getting boosters, infants are particularly susceptible, and guess what the one thing I'm allergic to is. Since my allergy is severe (The doctors say even a mild case could kill me and the vaccination definitely would) I have never had the shots and I am wondering what I can do for my child when I do get pregnant. Any thoughts or anyone in the same spot?

Re: Parent Immunization Help Please!

  • I'm wondering this as well. I have not had the pertussis vaccine due to being allergic, but I don't know to what extreme.
  • Oh wow! I've never heard this one before!

    I would talk to your OBGYN to find out what resources they suggest you take and any advice they could give you.

  • I'd love to know too.  What reactions do you guys have?  I had a fever of 105 and paralysis.  I'm also asthmatic so the thought of getting whooping cough scares me too.  I asked my GP and she said there wasn't anything I could do except wash my hands and avoid anyone I know who has it.  I'd love to know if you hear anything different.
