However, there appears to be a break-out of whooping cough in the area, and since I spend a lot of time around kids and teachers, I am getting a lot of pressure suddenly to take this vaccine.
According to the health center website where I'd be getting it, I am in the window of recommended time in pregnancy to get it. They say it will pass on to the baby and make her immune too for a while, so I know it's safe by those standards.
My question is if this is one of the controversial vaccines out there, and if so, what evidence is there that it might be one to avoid?
Is anyone else in an area near a recent outbreak an being pressured to get this vax?
