Question: How many tetenus injection shots needed to be taken during the entire period of pregnancy? I have already taken two shots. Do i need to take more?
Answer: Hi dear, In unimmunized pregnant woman :
2 doses of TT should be given. First as early as possible during pregnancy & second at least a month later ( & at least 3 weeks before delivery )
In previously immunized pregnant woman:
A booster dose is considered sufficient ( because repeated immunizations may produce side effects).these doses may be given between 16–36 weeks of pregnancy ( allowing an interval of 1–2 months between the 2 doses)
