In brief: Vaccines

Most vaccines are safe in pregnancy.
Check with your doctor. There is a list from the cdc which is easily accessed for this info. In general, live virus vaccines are to be avoided.

Also because of the whooping cough epidemics in many parts of the country, there is a new recommendation that unvaccinated pregnant women should get the Tdap after 20 weeks gestation. Ask your doctor about it.
