  •  I know people who can't have the pertussis vac (1+ / 0-)

    because of severe side effects. A friend of mine has temporal lobe seizures from the vac when she was a kid, and she was also paralyzed for a time. Her kids were not given the pertussis vac due to her reaction. They did get their other vacs however. Yes, they've changed the P vac some since we were kids, but she and the pediatrician talked it over and decided that the risk was too high in her children's case. She has long and short term memory issues from her seizures.
