Is It Okay To Give TT / MR Vaccine During 1 Month Of Pregnancy?
I was 1 month pregnant but I haven’t had an injection of MR or TT vaccine because I haven’t planned to get pregnant but when I got married I forgot to take the KB injection after waiting for my next menstruation and it turned out that I wasn’t menstruating and was positively pregnant. What if the vaccine is just now being injected?
Hi Agasshi .. Thanks for the question given.
It is better if pregnant women are given a TT (Tetanus toxoid) vaccine which functions to provide protection for both the mother and the fetus. For the first time, doctors often give TT injections at 7 months or 28 weeks of pregnancy. After that the second injection will be given 4 weeks after the first injection of the vaccine. So if you are vaccinated at week 28 of pregnancy, the next injection is given at week 32 of pregnancy. Meanwhile, the third injection is given 6 months after the second injection.
Meanwhile, pregnant women should not undergo the MR vaccine during pregnancy. It is better if this vaccine is given a maximum of 1 month before pregnancy. Apart from the MR vaccine, other vaccines that should be avoided during pregnancy are: varicella vaccine, hepatitis A vaccine, polio vaccine. It is better if you continue to consult with your obstetrician about the process of administering vaccines during pregnancy.
