Active Immunization in Pregnancy
More human lives have been saved or prolonged as a result of advances in infectious disease control or prevention than in any other area of medicine. Two major advances responsible for this claim are the development of effective antimicrobials and the development of effective immunization against infectious diseases with previously high morbidity and mortality rates. This chapter will review immunization with particular emphasis on pregnancy, beginning with a review of molecular mechanisms of immunization, and the use of specific vaccines during pregnancy.
