    Anthrax shots

    Advertisements
    My husband hasnt had an anthrax shot yet and the navy is making him get one . He doesnt want one because of all the horror storys everyone is telling him about side effects. One guy told him him it can make you have kids with birth deffects. Another guy said his kid was born with autism and he thinks its because he got the shot right before his wife got pregnant. Has anyone else experianced or known anyone that had side effects from the anthrax shot?

    mine got his and I got preg with Chris 2 months after he got it. the only side effect DH had was that he got sick. but i think that is because he got his anthrax and smallpox at the same time.

    honestly, you are hearing the same things that go around about childhood vaccines... to me there is no difference

    DH had his first round of Anthrax shots when I was pregnant with DD.. it's not like smallpox where they have to be restricted from sex with a pregnant woman, and there's nothing that they "give off" (like the small pox blister) that will harm you or your children.

    Sounds like he's hearing rumors and horror stories, and he really needs to talk to his Doc. Other than it hurting and DH running a mild fever, he had no other side effects and he's had several shots in the series now. He also got Anthrax and smallpox vaccine at the same time.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    I forgot to add that DH does pushups right after his shots to help spread the vaccine around and keep from being quite so sore. It really does help!
