I'm trying very hard to not let the pertussis fear mongerig get to me. I plan to do more reading on sodium ascorbate for treating whooping cough. I need to be confident in my ability to handle it if/when it comes around.

The ped tried to make it sound like a family seizure history was only a issue with the old DTP and assured me that in all his years he'd never had a patient seize from the DTaP (insert eye roll here), but later said something along the lines of the DTaP being less effective but just as reactive as DTP. Gotta love it when they talk themselves in circles.
