At my OB appointment today, my doctor told me that he's required to recommend the Tdap booster to every woman in the 3rd trimester--even if she's received the booster in the last year (Which I have. I got the booster in May 2012.) Has this come up with anyone else?
It could be a thing in my state because we are declared in a pertussis epidemic. I just checked our state's CDC website and it says "All pregnant women should get the Tdap vaccine during each pregnancy, even if you?ve gotten it before."
But my OB told me that he thinks that I should have great immunity having received the booster just a year ago, and he would not personally recommend it and is not at all concerned that I'm at risk. Would you have asked for it again? He will of course administer it at my next visit, if I wish.
