    Default Vaccination while pregnant??

    Hi all,

    Just a quick question... Does anyone know if it's safe to get vaccinated while pregnant?
    I've been accepted into a TAFE course that requires full vaccination before we start in Feb, I went to the dr and got my screening blood test and have an appointment on Wednesday to get any outstanding vaccinations... The thing is, we are TTC and this morning I woke feeling a bit nauseous. AF isn't due for another week but with DS I had morning sickness before AF was late.

    So is it safe for me to get vaccinated if I'm possible pregnant?

    It depends on the vaccine, some are not ok in pregnancy. I need a booster on one of mine but have to wait until bub arrives and then have it. Speak to your doctor about it.

    Mmr, tetanus and hep a,b,d are probably the ones you are required to have. It does say not to immunize during pregnancy but being protected out ways the impact if you were to be infected with any of these.
    Is it nursing you are doing? Does it need to be before the actual course starts or can it be done right before a placement?

    Thanks for the replies

    Yes it's for nursing, the teacher on the info day said we will be turned away if they aren't done

    Ok I would do it now then but maybe wait to see if its a bfp first.
    I am a nurse but I guess it's a gp sort of thing. See what they say. They will probably do it. But you could ask tafe to see if you could have in done later considering you won't be around patients in placement until the very end. They could use pregnancy as an exception

    Chances are you have had most of them already. MMR and tetanus. Maybe Hep b depending on your age. Have you travelled much? Have you had hep a?

    I would say you're probably covered. I'm 29 and fully covered apart from Hep a (which you would have been vaxxed for if you had one prior to going os).

    My last MMR booster was back as a kid and I just got my preg bloods back and my coverage is still great.

    Do a preg test and if positive speak to Tafe. If its for ain you will likely be able to reschedule your practicum for after the birth - going on months you won't finish tafe next year anyway as you will have a baby by August!

    I hope it's all up to date! I suppose it's just another spanner in the works.

    This tafe course is only for 3 months though, so will be finished in May... I believe the prac is done anytime In the last month...
