A Very Good Point, Lindsay.

My cousin, who is pretty much awesome all the time - brings up a pretty good point.

Did you know that your childhood vaccine for Pertussis (whooping cough) runs out?

Did you also know that you can give it to a baby who doesn't have the vaccine yet?
(They get it at 2 months)

There is a booster and it's easy to get.  Your local health clinic will give it to you.

Pertussis was nearly eradicated - and now its back, and stronger and more resistant to treatment than ever.

Get your booster.  You could save a life.

If you don't think it's serious, ask my mom what it was like watching her baby in the NICU for a month.

Or ask this lady what it's like to watch her brand new baby take his last, very labored, breath.

Thanks, people.  Mothers of new babies thank you.
