Tetanus Vaccination During Pregnancy


Tetanus is a fatal disease that can harm your nervous system & lead to your death after few days. It’s a kind of bacteria that gets inside your body through a wound/scratch/cut. Read more about Tetanus here.

Tetanus vaccination is given to pregnant women twice during pregnancy. I didn’t know about this til my Dr. told me that I have to be vaccinated. Got one shot when I was 5 months pregnant & got the 2nd a couple of days ago (7 months now).

I have 2 of my friends who were being treated at private hospitals when they were pregnant & didn’t get the vaccination. My regular checkups are at Rumaitheya Medical Centre (Public) & they’ve informed me about the vaccination without me asking about it, anyways I was clueless. Now, I dunno if all private hospitals are like that but I thought of writing about this important vaccination to let you know about it.

If you’re being treated at a private hospital ask about the Tetanus Vaccine, it’s very important for you & for your baby. If you’re being treated at a public hospital/clinic also ask about it, you never know they might forget about it.

P.S. Your arm will hurt you for a whole week after the vaccination, you won’t be able to sleep on it :/
