These antibodies inherited from the mother can protect the baby in its early months in the new world when it is too young to get vaccinated directly.

Our doctors recommend some common vaccinations in pregnancy and some other vaccinations depending on each case. Pregnant women are usually provided vaccines with dead or inactive viruses rather than live ones as the latter can be harmful to the baby. The following vaccines are recommended in pregnancy in most cases:
- Inactivated flu vaccine:
Healing Hospital recommends getting a flu shot to almost every pregnant woman in the flu season. It contains inactivated virus and so it safely protects the mother and child for several months after birth from flu.
Millions of flu shots have been given to pregnant women worldwide and they have been proven to be extremely safe.
- 3-in-1 vaccination:
3-in-1 Vaccine not just protects you and your baby from one disease, but from three diseases namely Tetanus, Diphtheria, Pertussis in just one shot.
Tetanus is a nerve disease which is caused by a bacterium called Clostridium tetani which is often found in soil. Neonatal tetanus usually occurs in newborns through infection of the unhealed umbilical stump.
Diphtheria is a serious throat infection that can block airways. It has been known as one of the most dangerous infectious diseases worldwide, which can lead to difficulty in breathing, heart failure, paralysis, or even death.
Pertussis, also known as whopping cough is a contagious respiratory disease which can lead to hospitalization in infants aged less than 2 months. Pertussis in infants may lead to serious complications like pneumonia and convulsions. If a mother has it, there are high chances of it getting transmitted to her baby.
- Hepatitis B vaccine:
Hepatitis B infection is a serious infection that causes inflammation of the liver. Hepatitis B infection in a pregnant woman might result in vertical transmission and may also increase the chance of preterm birth. Taking this vaccine is extremely crucial as most infected babies remain chronically diseased with hepatitis B even in their adult lives.
- Hepatitis A vaccine:
Hepatitis A is a viral liver disease which is transmitted through contaminated food or water or through direct contact with an infectious person. A Hepatitis A vaccine is made from inactivated virus and thus prevents the mother and child with the lowest amount of risk.
Which vaccines should you not take in pregnancy?
The following vaccines are not recommended for women in term of their pregnancy-
- Chicken Pox Vaccine
- Nasal Flu Vaccine
- Measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine
- Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine
Doctors also urge against the use of travel vaccines such as yellow fever vaccine and typhoid vaccine unless he/she determines that the benefits outweigh the risks.
