From the same folks who found aP suppresses symptoms but not transmission in baboons. They found it is effective in preventing disease in newborns when mothers are vaxed or newborns are vaxed at 2 days old. Glad I got it! I wonder how long protection lasts.

That's great news! 

 

For some reason it was never brought up during my pregnancy to get the vaccine.  Maybe because my son was going to be born in May?  I really have no idea but I am going to be sure to ask for it during my next pregnancy.

No one ever suggested it to me in any of my pregnancies, but I am going to ask for it this time. Thanks for the info. Poor baby baboons, though. That is terrible.

I went to dr for a "preconception appt" and got Tdap and flu shot. It was annoying that I got preg a month later, but also moved states and spent entire 9 mos telling drs I had already had tdap & flu shot.

I'm almost in my third trimester and my midwife hasn't brought it up yet. She was super late and had a quick appointment last time, but I definitely need to ask about this.

 

I was vaccinated with the old DTP series in the 80's. I wonder how the aP booster will work with that. I noticed these baboons were already primed with the aP before receiving the booster in the third tri.

This is an awesome finding though! One thing I was worried about is that the CDC can't say, beyond theoretical, how well maternal antibodies will work for young babies. This is definitely encouraging.

My friend's newborns had whooping cough when I was 37 weeks. It then went round the village in unvaccinated kids. I was mortified and made sure I got mine and DS was up to date! None of us got it, even though we were in contact with people who had it. SCARY!

Another study has just been published on this subject. Small sample size, not conclusive, but it's another bit of evidence to add to the 2011 recommendation intended to protect newborns from whooping cough.
