Vaccines Before, During and After Pregnancy

Dr. Alberto Sirven

Doctor Alberto Sirven, Obstetrician-Gynecologist at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, affirms the ideal time to get vaccinated is before pregnancy.

Some vaccines are got in the third trimester of pregnancy: Tdap vaccine (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis). “All the studies have shown that the majority of the immunoglobulins are found in the baby’s blood after delivered,” he says. The flu vaccine, he recommends, should be given in every pregnancy.

Babies should be given the first shot of hepatitis B vaccine shortly after birth, the specialist says, and recommends discussing with the physician any decision about that.
