    The way I looked at it was if anything happened because I didn't have it I wouldn't forgive my self ...and think of all the people who have had it now and had there baby's if there was any problems with it they wouldn't be giving it us x

    I chose not to have it. If you do all your research and make an informed cboice its the best you can do. If you look on nhs website there is information on the vaccine, its side effects etc. Xx

    you have it any time after your 28 week mark :)
    i had no side affects whatsoever other than the same as when i had my flu jab.. an aching arm! lol
    the nurse will tell you all the benefits of the vaccine when you have it :) i think its really good and worth having if you look at the down sides nowadays of not having it id recommend any woman having it :) xx

    just found this on the nhs website..

    Whooping cough is a serious illness. Babies who get it can develop severe complications such as pneumonia and brain damage. Most babies with whooping cough will need hospital treatment, and when whooping cough is very severe they may die.
    There is a large outbreak of whooping cough in the UK at the moment, with three times more cases in the general population than there were last year. In the first seven months of this year, 235 babies under 12 weeks old had whooping cough. Sadly, 13 babies have died from whooping cough so far this year.
    Babies who are too young to be vaccinated are at greatest risk.

    this is also a good link..

    I had mine a couple of weeks ago and the only side effect I had was that my arm felt a bit bruised for a couple of days, apart from that it was fine.
