Planning pregnancy and vaccine H1N1



I`ve got H1N1 vaccine shot yesterday and in one week will have my ovulation days. Since my husband and I planned baby I`m wondering now is that safe to get pregnant only week after vaccination, can it harm baby and is it better to skip this month? Not so many information about this on net so I would appreciate your opinion. Thanks in advance,


The H1N1 is an inactivated (killed) virus vaccine. The vaccine is strongly recommended for pregnant women. With the caveat that no vaccine is guaranteed to be 100% safe, no adverse effects from the vaccine are expected either for getting pregnant or for being pregnant. I recommend that you discuss this with your personal physician in case there are special circumstances of which I am not aware.
