So last Thursday week my little man had his vaccines.. Including the oral rotavirus vaccine.
Wednesday midnight I woke puking and poohing.
I was so rough that df took Ed to work with him.. He's runs a bed and breakfast with his m?ther so Ed stayed mostly with mil,fil and nan.
Obviously we didn't want Ed to get what I had.
Within 24 hours I hear that mil and m's 91 year old nan are throwing up!!
Then I hear fil who had flown to Italy is throwing up and m has been in bed feeling sick!!
I originally thought I must have given it to everyone on Sunday before my symptoms came out but on researching I see that the rotavirus vaccine is live and you need to take extra special care when changing nappies!!!
What I want to know is why did the nurse not warn me?????
Had I known that Ed could be contagious I would never have ask m to take him that day!!
This could be really bad for nan considering she also had a mild stroke just before Ed was born!!!
I am fuming at the incompetence of this woman not letting a first time mum know of the risks!!

That is my rant!!
Please keep my in laws edpecially nan in your thoughts.

That is gross negligence on the part of the nurse!! You should call your dr's office to complain immediately. Even if you were not a ftm, she is required to tell you about the risks of a live vaccine!
Not cool at all!! I hope you all start to feel better soon!! And that your nan doesn't have any complications from this!

Yup.. Done it.. Via letter and phone all.
I am waiting on a response to see how they plan to handle this.
Everyone is gradually recovering.
Nan has slipped a disc now which may have been through vomiting.
Mil is still under the weather but feeling better.
This has caused a row between m and I as Ed has 1or 2 mire doses I think at 12 weeks and 16 weeks and he wants to opt out now as he thinks it us more dangerous then good.
