Maternal Vaccine

Vaccinating women while they are pregnant helps protect their newborns.  These vaccines not only protect mom, but also protect babies when they are too young to receive vaccines. Pregnant women need to discuss their vaccine needs with their healthcare provider to discuss and determine the best time to get vaccinated.
