Well, after reading Warren's response, and talking to my URO and Internist I received a DPT today, and feel confident that all will go well with the BCG and the DPT. Thank you so much Warren for your insight and Patricia for your thoughts!
We all have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, and at the top of my list is this Forum:)

I believe up to 64 means anything under 65. I haven't researched since I don't treat any 65 year olds, but, I know the DTaP for kids is approved up to 6 years and that means anyone under 7.

Hi Nix...doing some further research and i keep coming up with the vaccine only given to ages l9 to 64...??? So does that eliminate you?
Everything changes so fast. I was at the birth and helped care for my Granddaughter just two years ago, and this was not mentioned. If I had heard this a month ago - no problem, I was between the BCG's. Oh what we do for our wonderful grandchildren!!
Thank you so much for taking time to give me an educated answer. After reading your response (several times) I do have relief if I decide to receive the vaccine. One other fact I did not mention is I am 64 1/2 yrs young and I had a DT vaccine 2 1/2 yrs ago. I can't help to think that 6 months from now this would not be in question, since I would be that "magic" age of 65:) My PCP said I would have more of a "local" reaction because I still have antibodies in my system.
Thank you so much for your time and effort you put forth your help on this subject! Any other advice is always appreciated!!!!
