    Get Dr. Kitten to give you the good cough syrup.

    Oh no!!!! I had that when I was a kid (I think)… Take care of yourself.

  3. Lurkertype says:

    Didn't we all get shots for this as babies? I guess it wears off after 30-40 years.

  4. Morgat says:

    Yeah, we did get shots for it at intervals as babies and small kids, which is why I put (I think) after I said I'd had it, because I know I had my shots, so how did I get pertussis as a kid?
    As you say, I guess it wears off after um, some-ty years. Are we supposed to get booster shots when we're adults?

    Man, that sucks. …blows. …something. Anyway, get better.

    You two are having a rough go of it lately. I hope the cats have some nursing skills. Feel better soon!

    Yeah, the vaccine wears off with time. And now you can get a booster. Tdap was licensed in 2005 for use in adults. It is a tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis vaccine. It is recommended by the CDC to be used in place of the Td (tetanus and diphtheria) booster in people aged 11 to 64.

    Laurie, they do have cuddling skills which substitutes well for nursing skills.
