We have not vax'd at all and ds is now 7 1/2. Since he is so active outdoors we decided to do the tetanus. We have a drs appt tomorrow - the dr said he had the vac with the 3 in it (pertussus & diptheria too) and would I be ok with it. Initially I was, but now I'm seeing where they don't give the pertussis to over 7 yo's. I called the cdc and they said it would just be the Td vaccine (and again in 4 wks and 6 mos - 3 vac's total).
I have been trying to do research on this vaccine and feel like I"m getting flooded with all sorts of confusing info. Can anyone share what they know?? I have a limited amt of time to figure this out before the appt and would like to get it taken care of if possible.
