Successful maternal immunization requires consideration of maternal and infant disease burden, biological factors affecting immune response and placental transport of antibodies, optimal timing of immunization, safety and acceptability. Tetanus, inactivated influenza and acellular pertussis vaccines are recommended during pregnancy; others are recommended when maternal risk of infection is high. The development of new conjugate vaccines for use in adults may reduce global maternal and infant disease burden. Maternal immunization against group B streptococcus is projected to be superior to current preventative strategies in decreasing disease. Further evaluation of maternal immunization strategies to prevent maternal and infant infections is needed.
