Hep B and Pregnancy
Sep 29, 2010

I had to get the Hepatitis B Vaccine because I work in the health department at a hospital. I have taken 3 total shots of the vaccine, my last one in July. The doctor said not to get pregnant while I was being administered the vaccine. Am I OK to get pregnant now?

Response from Dr. McGovern

There is actually no harm of getting pregnant even DURING the vaccine series or AFTER. There are no safety concerns because of the type of vaccine it is.
