​​​​​​​​​african-american woman talking on the phone in a coffee shop​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Pregnancy is a time when you and your baby need all the protection you can get.

Vaccinations during pregnancy will give protection to both mother and baby. 

When you are vaccinated, your body will create protective antibodies that will pass to your baby before birth. This will provide  protection to your baby after he/she  is born.

You can also provide indirect protection to your baby by making sure everyone who is around your baby is up-to-date with their vaccinations.​

​​Recommended vaccinations for pregnant women:

COVID-19 – adults, including pregnant women, should receive a primary series and booster dose of COVID-19 vaccine, even if you already had COVID-19 infection.​

Diphtheria, TetanusWhooping Cough (Pertussis) – you need this vaccination (Tdap) during each of your pregnancy usually between 27 and 36 weeks into your pregnancy. This is given to boost maternal immunity which then helps protect your newborn baby from pertussis. (whooping cough).  

Influenza – you will need this vaccine for each influenza (flu) season. Pregnant women are more prone to severe illness from influenza. Pregnant women with influenza also have a greater chance for serious problems for their unborn baby, including premature labor and delivery.
