The Doctor Is In:  Answering Your Vaccine Questions – Women During Pregnancy


Dr. Adams: Hello, America! As the nation’s doctor, I hear from folks
every day with health questions. In this video, I’m going to tackle some top
questions about vaccines. I’m Surgeon General Jerome Adams, and the
doctor is in.>>Hey Kate, how’s the pregnancy going?>>It’s going really well; I’m so excited about
having a baby girl.>>Aww.>>But I’ve gotta ask you a question: I just
recently had a doctor’s appointment and my doctor recommended that I get vaccinated at
my next appointment. Why do you think they suggested that?>>You know, sometimes moms can get sick while
they’re pregnant and vaccines can protect you from getting sick or from getting as sick. And, just as importantly, some of your immunity
then gets passed along to your baby and can protect her in the critical first few months
after she’s born.>>But do you think it’s safe though for my
baby?>>Absolutely. We’ve been studying vaccines for decades and
I can say with confidence that they’re a safe and effective way to protect your little girl.>>That makes me feel better and I’m going
to get vaccinated at my next appointment. Thank you! You know, I love talking with folks about
health. If you have more questions about vaccines,
I encourage you to find out more at vaccines.gov. Thanks for watching and see you next time. V-O: Produced by the U.S. Department of Health
