My husband and I will receive the shot in the hospital after delivery. It's highly recommended, like the flu shot, as whooping cough is reappearing in the US. While just an annoying and painful cough for us, it could be deadly to a newborn.
Is there a reason your husband is waiting to get it? The vaccine takes 2 weeka to be effective, so you are exposing baby for 2 weeks for no reason..,
I got mine last week (30 weeks). My arm was sore for a couple days, but nothing too bad. My friends 1. mo old (at the time in Oct) stopped breathing, had to be given CPR, and was in the hospital for a week with pertussis. I see zero reason to wait to get it.
