Tetanus booster: Boostrix is an appropriate vaccine to administer one time after the primary pediatric series is complete. It is reported to be Category C for administration during pregnancy, but can be administered to pregnant women after 20 weeks.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
