Strep and a 1 year old

Hello ladies! I have a question and I have been waiting for hours to hear back from my ped office...If an adult has strep and is around my 1.5 year old, can my son get it? I heard that kids under 2 can not catch it due to the glands not being fully formed, but I could be misinformed. Also, about how long before he could show signs of having it if he did catch it? Thanks for your help.
