... was planning on falling pregnant . Would it be safe for me to get the caccine???
I suppose you'll be getting the vaccination before you go. So I'm not sure whether you intend to be pregnant by then or not. The statement below may help you understand your situation ... but also please talk to your doctor.
Vaccines may be harmful to an unborn baby and generally should not be given to a pregnant woman. However, not vaccinating the mother could be more harmful to the baby if the mother becomes infected with a disease that this vaccine could prevent. Your doctor will decide whether you should receive this vaccine, especially if you have a high risk of infection with yellow fever.
