  • Contraindications & Precautions

Which vaccines are contraindicated if a child’s mother or other household member is pregnant?

Having a pregnant person in a household, including the child’s mother, is not a contraindication to administration of any routinely recommended vaccine. Pregnant people should not have close contact with anyone who has recently (within the last 28 days) received the live, replication-competent smallpox vaccine (ACAM2000, Emergent Biosolutions).
