Immunization During Pregnancy

There are two vaccines routinely recommended during pregnancy: a seasonal influenza vaccine and Tdap (to protect against pertussis). Vaccination during pregnancy allows the mother to transfer antibodies to the infant. This provides some protection against pertussis in early life, before infants are able to receive the primary DTaP series beginning at 2 months of age.
