You may visit her after soon receiving the whooping cough vaccine. The vaccine does not contain live organisms, so there is no risk of infection to anyone.

We give pertussis (whooping couogh) vaccinations to pregnant women late in pregnancy to help to protect the baby from pertusssis. There is no risk of the baby getting whooping cough from the vaccine. Best regards.
