    Question... is it one they place right under the skin and you have to go back and get checked?

    Oh - I thought you said it was something you had before.

    Can you call and ask? I mean either way I don't think any vaccine is contraindicated with bf'ing... but I am curious now My money is still on it being the TB test (as opposed to the vax).

    I did have it years ago but I honestly don't remember, mommy brain I guess!

    When I go in Fri I will ask about it before I get it.

    It's usually done every year. And it's not called a "TB shot". That would make it sound like a vax.
    I think you talked to a goofball.

    I hope it's not an indication of how everyone there is! I do know that the lady I talked to was fairly new...
