Wonderful news came this week regarding the success of maternal whooping cough boosters in saving the lives of babies too young to be immunised. From NSW Government Facebook:
Not a single child has died from whooping cough since the free whooping cough vaccination was introduced in 2015. The vaccine for pregnant women has reduced the chance of newborns with the illness being hospitalised by 94%. If you’re expecting, chat to your doctor about getting the free vaccine 👶 http://ow.ly/r4VS30iSUAd
Sara Stacey, of New South Wales, exclaimed:
This makes me soooo angry!
