Question: 

My mother can't get vaccines. I am about to give birth. Should I limit her contact with the new baby? What is recommned in situations like this?

Answer: 

There are many factors to consider here.  What we recommend is that you discuss your situation with your family doctor or a public health nurse.  Your doctor or a pubic health nurse can provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision and can also provide you with information on other ways to protect your baby, such as general infection control measures. You can find the contact information for your local public health unit here.
