It was recommended to me multiple times... I have refused each time. I won't be getting it after delivery either. The safety is just not proven for me!

I have also refused it. The DTaP vaccine isn't very effective, not safe to take during pregnancy nor am I convinced it has done any amount of good for our population on a whole. In all honesty I think there is reason to suspect the vax is the cause of all these cases of wc we are currently seeing.

Re: DTaP vaccine ???

I think if you have kids and are around kids a lot you would be exposed to it naturally and keep your immunity up that way. Also, are you sure you never had pertussis as a child? I was worried about getting the shot and then my mom told me I had it as a baby so I'm probably more immune. I wouldn't get it when you're pregnant but maybe consider getting it a few months post-partum, maybe along with baby if you're vaxing him/her.
