Just found out that there is a whooping cought vaccine on the cbs news last night.  I have been waking up in the middle of the night with this big phlemn (muccus) mess.  This is suppose to be a booster shot for adults.  Does anybody know anything about it?

Joan,
 
I have not heard anything about it.  Have you researched it on-line yet.  If you find out anything, let us know.
 
Take care!

yes it is the pertussis vaccine...if you are under 65 you can get it in the dtp shot if you are well enough along with your flu shot. I am going to discuss it with my allergist for next year if he has it and agrees it is appropriate.

(have severe arthritis but not epilepsy and no hypothyroidism - I have some high blood pressure too)

Take care of yourself too Carla
