Vaccines

Pregnant women are at an increased risk for flu and should be vaccinated whether they are HIV positive or negative. They should be given the flu vaccine (containing season and H1N1 vaccines).

Hepatitis A (HAV), hepatitis B (HBV) and pneumococcal vaccines can be used during pregnancy.

Live vaccines (including measles, mumps and rubella) should not be used during pregnancy.
