Vaccines can help keep you and your growing family healthy. If you are pregnant or planning a pregnancy, the specific vaccinations you need are determined by factors such as your age, lifestyle, medical conditions you may have, such as asthma or diabetes, type and locations of travel, and previous vaccinations. CDC has guidelines for the vaccines you need before, during, and after pregnancy. Some vaccines, such as the Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR) vaccine, should be given a month or more before pregnancy. You should get some vaccines, like Tdap to protect against a whooping cough, during your pregnancy. Vaccinating the mother before, during and after the pregnancy does not only protects the mother, it will also protect the baby’s health. The vaccine depends on some dependent factors such as your age, lifestyle, medical conditions, such as asthma or diabetes & allergic conditions, locations of travel vaccinations. Neonates and young children are susceptible to many serious infectious diseases which are preventable through vaccination (Neonatal Vaccination). Recent vaccines strategies taken to prevent infectious diseases are unable to induce protective levels of antibodies in the first 6 months of life.
