Hi!!!The use of most vaccines during pregnancy
is not usually recommended as a precaution,but there is no convincing evidence that the use of any vaccine should be an absolute contraindication during pregnancy, particularly inactivated vaccines. The only exception is smallpox vaccination
, which has been shown to cause fetal malformation.
Live attenuated vaccines,including rabies
are contraindicated for pregnant women because of the hypothetical risk of harm to the fetus should transmission occur. If a live attenuated vaccine is given to a pregnant woman, or if a woman becomes pregnant within 4 weeks of vaccination, she should be counselled about the potential transmission, which is extremely unlikely, to the fetus. There is, however, no indication to consider termination of a pregnancy in this situation.
So,it is recommended that she can continue with the pregnancy and give birth to a health baby....
