Synopsis:

Maternal Immunization provides a contemporary overview on vaccines in pregnancy (and the lactation period), with an emphasis on important aspects for the target group, namely, the rationale for the use of vaccines in pregnancy, safety, immunogenicity (immunology), timing, repeat doses, protective effects in both mother, fetus and infant, acceptance, and the implementation of existing and of future vaccines. Vaccination in pregnancy is a proven strategy to prevent infection in both the mother and the young infant, therefore there is an increasing focus on how to harness this approach for other infections of importance.



  • Provides an overview of a quickly evolving topic
  • Appeals to a broad audience, including scientific researchers, industry leaders, obstetricians, gynecologists, neonatologists, pediatricians and students
  • Allows a specialist to gain insight into other aspects of vaccination in pregnancy outside of their specialty
  • Co-authored by specialists from multiple disciplines, providing a diverse view of the subject and increasing its interest and appeal
