I was at my Dr on Thursday for my thyroid issues and I asked about getting the TDaP she said "that is fine if you want it" I figured she'd jump at the opportunity and then asked if the kids in my home were vaccinated for it. I said not my youngest and she looked at me confused and said "your 2 year old?" I nodded and she said "well, I wouldn't recommend it then because you could pass the illness to her through your nasal secretions". I thought that this was a dead strain though in the vaccine and so why would that be the case and why would they give it to mother's of newborns in the hospital if that were true???
Any input? Was she correct or no?

Hm, as far as I know the TDaP is inactivated, although I could be wrong. But I'm pretty sure it is a killed vaccine, so I don't see how it could make you infectious. Maybe your doctor had a different vaccine on her mind? I do think it's great that she was thinking about the consequences of being vaccinated and whether it would make you infectious to other people.

Thanks Julie_aka_Mommy!

Hmm...I'd not heard that either...although...if I were to get the shot again I wouldn't unless I was planning on the young ones getting it too...since at least if I dont have it and I get whooping cough I'd know and be able to resist spreading it as much as possible...whereas if I had the shot I'd just assume it was a cold and wouldn't be as careful if that makes sense....

Anyway....You might talk to your pediatrician that you go to and see what their thought is on it.

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
