I have become increasingly concerned about my 3 month old and exposure to Whooping Cough. I haven't had him vaccinated at all and would rather not, but there have been a number of people with Pertussis in my state lately and I'm worried about the possible risk to my son. I do not want to vaccinate him because of the health risks from the vaccine but I don't know which is worse.
i compleatly understand how you feel. i am spreading out my babys vaccines so that she only gets 2 at a time and at least 2-3 weeks apart. i would give him the whooping cough vaccine because if he catches it, not only will he be miserable, but so will you. think about the worse cough you'v ever had, and x's it by 10. thats how it would be for him. good luck, and do what you think is best...-Lis
