The aim of the study is to present the current recommendations for administration of vaccines in pregnant women. Vaccinations in pregnancy can be divided into: recommended (eg. vaccination against hepatitis B, seasonal influenza, tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), possible to be conducted (eg. in a case of travel to endemic countries, current local epidemics and a significant exposure to the disease: vaccination against hepatitis A, poliomyelitis, meningococcal infections), contraindicated (vaccination against mumps, rubeola, measles, chicken pox, tuberculosis). Vaccines containing inactivated microorganisms and their components or metabolic products are considered safe and can be used in pregnant women, while vaccines containing live attenuated microorganisms are contraindicated. Medical professionals should be more involved in the promotion of vaccinations in pregnant women.
