The current strategy is to vaccinate women during pregnancy in an attempt to imitate the immunity that most mothers used to have naturally. Since it is well known that whatever immune response they can provoke with the vaccine doesn't last, the recommendation is to give the vaccine during EVERY pregnancy.
Scary, since studies of outcomes are few and far between and also short-term.
Just to clarify the reasons behind the pregnancy recommendations.
There is a battle of two wolves inside us. One is good and the other is evil. The wolf that wins is the one you feed.
Book and herb loving mama to 1 preteen and 2 teens (when did that happen?). We travel, go to school, homeschool, live rurally, eat our veggies, spend too much time...
