Tetanus Booster Recommendation

For the pregnant patient with no identifiable risk factors, a tetanus booster is recommended.

Women who will be pregnant during influenza season should receive the inactived vaccine.

In addition, this particular patient should also receive hepatitis B vaccine because of her history of high-risk sexual behavior.

Tdap would both provide the needed tetanus booster and help to minimize the risk of spreading pertussis to nursing-home residents.
