Why should pregnant women be vaccinated?

ANSWER

Many women may not realize they're not up-to-date on their immunizations and are open to diseases that can harm them or their unborn child. Pregnant women should talk to their doctors to figure out which vaccines they may need and whether they should get them during pregnancy or wait until after their child is born.
