I'm not talking about infant vaccinations.
I'm talking about the Adult Pertussis Vaccine. The TDap booster. As soon as Hannah is done nursing, I am going to get the vaccine.
Over this past year, I have been following Natalie Norton's blog. She is a relative of a friend and I normally follow her for her photography. In December of last year her sweet son Gavin contracted pertussis (whooping cough). He passed away on January 7th, he was 10 weeks old.
He did not die because HE wasn't vaccinated (he was still to young to receive it)...
...Did you know that as an adult YOU can carry pertussis and give it to an infant without even knowing that you have it? Pertussis may not do much to you...
...but, it can be fatal for an infant.
So, please, get your Adult Tdap booster.
