Is vaccination contraindicated for pregnant women or women that breast-feed?
Pregnancy itself is a condition that predisposes women to certain greater health problems in foreign countries. There are some travel vaccines and medications that are indicated for pregnant women. However, some are contraindicated for pregnant women. It’s therefore important to take the necessary measures to protect yourself and consult our travel health clinic in order to assess the situation.
Breast feeding, like pregnancy, requires special attention. Your destination, the length of your trip and the age of your child are but some of the elements that must be evaluated before we make recommendations concerning vaccination or preventive medication.
