Is it safe to immunize my 15 month old child with MMR while I am pregnant?
Immunization of household contacts with the MMR vaccine is safe for pregnant women. Vaccine viruses in the MMR vaccine are not transmitted to contacts so the vaccine does not pose a risk to a pregnant household member. The MMR vaccine should be administered to children and other household contacts of pregnant women as recommended. Ensuring that children and other close contacts are up-to-date with their immunizations can help protect the health of the pregnant woman and her baby.
