Can you call or email your doctor’s office and ask them? My mom just got a whooping cough booster shot (I was there in the office with her), and her doctor didn’t mention anything about not being around babies for three months.

That’s not true. I was a nurse in pediatrics and got my booster and continued to work.

That’s weird…the whole advertising for getting the vaccine was that if you were going to be around children then you should get the vaccine. :/

My doctor recommended I get the booster as soon as I give birth. : So I doubt she would say that if I wasn’t allowed to be around my own child afterwards.

Nope. Wrong.

Like PP have said, it’s if you DON’T get the vaccine that it might be an issue.

I don’t think it works like that BUT from my understanding the Whooping Cough vaccine does NOT protect against being infected/being a carrier, just having it a full blown case. So, you could still be a carrier of the disease/even have a mild case that goes undiagnosed and pass it on to someone unvaccinated even if you are vaccinated & up-to-date with a booster.

I dont think thats true either. My doctor’s plan was to give me the shot right after the baby was born and she knows I am breast feeding. And my husband is getting it next week.

Not true – my doctor’s office now recommends getting the Tdap vaccine during the second trimester….
