Vaccines, screenings, and immunizations are essential elements of pregnancy care:
Pregnant women's resistance to infections decreases during pregnancy. This makes them more susceptible to certain viruses. If infected, they can also get more sick, especially if they already suffer from medical conditions such as asthma.
Vaccines during pregnancy protect you and your baby! Your body makes antibodies in response to the vaccines and you pass some of these antibodies to your baby.
