Hi,

I am Dr. Anjuli Dixit, Gynaecologist. I am talking about preventive health care in pregnancy. I will tell you about 2 vaccines - Flu and T-dap. These vaccines are given to both mother and child at the time of the pregnancy. They both are at the risk of developing disease due to the lack of immunity and infections. With the help of these vaccines, both are safe and protected. This vaccine can be given if there is any episode of flu. Otherwise, we give after 26 weeks. Baby is also able to survive or handle all those infections. These vaccines can be given at any reputed nursing homes or by any gynecologist at the clinic. These should always be given at any pregnant patient between 26-36 weeks.

For any help or query, you can contact me through Lybrate.

Thank You.
