worried and pregnant comment
Nov 17, 2003
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY SHE SAID SHE CAN'T GET VACINATED AGAINIST HEP B, I WAS DURING MY PREGNANCY, AND NOTHING BAD HAPPENED, I ACTUALLY FOUND COMFORT KNOWING THAT I WAS TAKING CARE OF MY HEALTH, AND ALL MY DOCTORS SAID IT WOULDN'T AFFECT ME OR THE BABY. I HOPE YOU RECONSIDER ITS SAFER TO DO THAT THEN SOMETHING TO ACCIDENTALLY HAPPEN.
Response from Dr. Dieterich
thanks for that! It is safe. HBV vaccine is just a protein, not a live virus vaccine. DTD
