By means of immunization it is possible to protect an organism of pregnant women from some diseases. However it is always worth proportioning degree of risk and necessity of a certain vaccine.

For this reason immunization of pregnant women is considered very important. Many future mothers worry because their diseases and the taken medicine can affect health of the child. Separately it should be taken into account the problem of preventive inoculations. All because they can or protect the child from a disease, or do much harm to it.
Doctors claim that it is better not to avoid necessary vaccination. Just it is worth knowing and understanding what inoculations are considered as admissible for pregnant women.
When does future mother need an inoculation?
Immunization can be carried out only in case of a high possibility of infection: - after contact with the diseased; - at an adverse general epidemiological situation. If there is no urgent need to do an inoculation, then it is better to refuse it. Influence of the majority of vaccines on development of the child is still insufficiently studied.
