This is my first post here as all of my children are older. My youngest DS will be 11 on Tuesday and has an appointment with his pediatrician for a well check up and a medicine check up. He is on meds for ADHD and anxiety. I received a letter from the middle school that he will be attending this school year stating that I have not sent in records that my son has received his Tdap booster and will have to do so before he will be allowed to attend school on 8/13. I have vaccinated at all other times (because I didn't know any better) and I would just like some other mothers that delay vax or don't vax at all to give me their opinion here. Would you get this booster for your child?

I would not get this update. I might get the DT, but I wouldn't go with pertussis. It doesn't work - immunity wears off, and the disease may be evolving to be resistant to the vaccine. I'm not sure about DT myself, so I can't give you any thoughts on that. I can tell you that it's very difficult to get tetanus. I've done a lot of research on that. I don't think there's any harm in delaying until you've fully decided.
I hope this helps a bit!
