    i dont know 'how long' but just wanted to let u know that just because u and ur partner have been vaccinated doesnt mean u wont contract it and pass it on to ur little miss. Vaccinations are not 100%
    If u feel unwell u should still be carefull around her just in case

    If you catch whooping cough you are able to pass it on to other, whether you are vaccinated or not. The vaccine is about 90% effective.
