I know they are not safe during pregnancy. We need to get done some vaccination ahd x-ray for the purposes of immigration.
The vaccination are below:
Tetanus, MMR and Varicella
And they have to do chest x-ray.
Which vaccines are not allowed and harmful during pregnancy? Due date is end of october. I heard it is also not advisable to get some of the vaccines during breastfeeding as well. So, when are these allowed? (both x-ray and vaccines).
This is definitely one that you need to talk to your doctor about. Here's some information I found on safefetus.com:
Tetanus is not recommended, but if you haven't had an immunization or booster in 10 years and are at high risk for tetanus infection, your doctor might recommend it. I would wait until the third trimester. MMR is NOT recommended while pregnant (in fact, they don't want you to get pregnant within 3 months of having it either), but it is recommended in the immediate postpartum and although it does travel through the milk, it's not known to cause problems. Varicella is safe while breastfeeding, but the jury is kind of out on whether or not pregnant women should get it during pregnancy. I'd wait until after to get that one too.

I agree with Joanna I would talk to my doctor for sure. I would avoid what you don't have to get. Just to dangerous to baby and momma. Congratulations on your pregnancy. I hope your stuff goes well and you can hold off on the vacinces and xray.
