vaccination and preganacy
May 15, 2002

I just completed my third and last hepatitis B vaccination for job related reasons. However, The month I received my last shot I also found out I was pregnant. Will this last vaccination shot have ill effects for my unborn child?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

The vaccine should not be an issue, it is only a protein. You are better off vaccinated. Good luck with the pregnancy! DTD
