Vaccinations in Pregnancy

Vaccinations are not generally recommended in pregnancy with the exception of the influenza or “flu” vaccine, which is the one vaccine that is recommended by the National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia

Each year the dominant strains of flu are incorporated into a vaccine that is given to people at risk, including pregnant women.

I strongly recommend the flu vaccine if you will be in the second or third trimester of pregnancy between May and October.
