7 Months Pregnant And Have A History Of Heart, Can I Get Tetanus Injection?
I want to ask if I’m pregnant at 7 months of pregnancy, I have a history of heart. Can I inject TT?
Hello Ulfah, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
TT injection is recommended for pregnant women to prevent tetanus infections in the mother and baby during labor. World Health Organization (WHO) recommends giving TT injections when pregnant women come for a first-time check-up and re-injecting at least 4 weeks afterwards. In practice, some new doctors give TT injections at 7 months of pregnancy and repeat the second injection 4 weeks after the first injection. Both are fine.
Having a history of heart disease alone is not a contraindication to TT injections, which means you can still receive this vaccination. Contraindications to TT injections are allergic reactions to vaccine components (especially severe allergic / anaphylactic reactions). You can further discuss with your obstetrician regarding administering this vaccine for you.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
