    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Wow, so sad! She didn't mention it, but that would be hard to think that she is the one who gave it to her too. I so need to remember to get the vaccine booster after I deliver!

    I got vaccinated right after I had my daughter last february. My brother had whopping cough when he was two and my mother told me it is hard to see your child going through something like that. Luckily my brother recovered and now is a father himself.

    The story is very very long, I don't think I can copy and paste it. Do you want me to paste into a word doc and email it to you?

    That's sad. I got vaccinated for whooping cough last July when I got a tetnis shot. After reading this story I'm glad I did.
