AdultVaxView for Pregnant Women

Certain diseases that can be especially dangerous for pregnant women and newborn babies can be prevented by vaccines. Influenza and Tdap vaccinations are recommended with each pregnancy. Other vaccinations may not be recommended during pregnancy. Ideally, check with your provider before you get pregnant to see if you are up-to-date with your vaccines and which ones you should get before, during, and after pregnancy. Vaccines are an important part of a healthy pregnancy. Vaccines not only help protect you, they can also help protect your baby during the time when he or she is at high risk of severe disease, but is too young to get vaccinated.
