Kids who are reactive... - Page 2

post #21 of 24
Another anecdote: my oldest have a severe reaction after his third dose of DTaP, but when he had pertussis infection a couple of months later, it was quite mild, especially considering how young he was.

Something just occurred to me--since our kids had both the vaccine and then very mild pertussis, are these anecdotes supporting the claim that the vaccine works to diminish the symptoms?

FWIW, my DD only had one DTaP because I stopped vaxing after that. The reaction was too alarming even though at the time I didn't even know that it qualified as a reaction.

Sure, I don't doubt that the vax helps lessen the severity of pertussis, but the question is: At what cost?

I guess I wasn't sure about the first part.
