Just posted on the same subject, great minds etc. Hope we get some further info, I don't want to be rushed into it but of course don't want to risk the baby getting wh cough (I'm 34+3).

I found websites saying they reccomend the vaccine after 34 weeks and rang the vaccination Australia people who confirmed this but my dr and midwives had never heard of it and said to wait until after birth.
I'm interested to see how you go- mine was a year ago, wonder if it's different now.
