Anyone have information on getting the whooping cough booster vaccine during the 3rd trimester of pregnancy to help build the babies immunity? Yay or Nay and why? Midwife suggested it but wanted to look into it before saying yes or no.
Any advice, opinions or suggestions?
Here are the package inserts for both brands of Tdap vaccine.
"Pregnancy Category C Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Adacel vaccine. It is also not known whether Adacel vaccine can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. Adacel vaccine should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed."
"Pregnancy Category C Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with BOOSTRIX. It is also not known whether BOOSTRIX can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. BOOSTRIX should be given to a pregnant woman only if clearly needed."
