Brief Answer:

You can have the second shot after 2 weeks.

Detailed Answer:


Thanks for posting your query.

During pregnancy two TT shots are taken six weeks apart.

It is best if taken after 27 weeks but even if you have taken it earlier it provides a good enough immunity till the delivery.

There is no need to worry. Go for the second shot after two weeks and complete your immunization.

I hope this answers your query.

Wishing you good health.

Take care,
