Whooping cough vaccine before 20 weeks of pregnancy

While i went for my flu jab I was also given the whooping cough Vaccine at 13 weeks pregnant by a nurse at my surgery by mistake. I initially thought it was too early to be having this and I questioned this, but she insisted that as long as I had my first scan I'm fine to have it.
I received a phone call from the nurse and my midwife a week later to say that I had been given the whooping cough vaccine by mistake. I have now been recommended to have the jab again before 32 weeks. I'm not sure what to do about this. Has anyone been in the same situation?
