Answer-- Get all your vaccinations done BEFORE you get pregnant. You don't want live vaccine viruses around while you are pregnant, because they can hurt the developing baby. Some vaccines are live viruses and other vaccines are dead viruses, so check with your doctor which is which. As long as you get pregnant about 4-6 months after your final vaccination (for a live virus vaccine) you should be OK. Also, don't let the new baby get vaccines too young, or too many all at once. "Get your immunities to common childhood diseases (mumps and measles) tested. If you received the shots during certain years and lot numbers, they might not have worked. This is to avoid birth defects. Wait a while (at least three months) after getting the shot, before you get pregnant." "Getting rubella (German measles) early in pregnancy can cause birth defects. A simple blood test can tell if you have immunity. If you are not immune, a vaccine given at least 3 months before getting pregnant will protect you from getting rubella in the future."

Does a mare need extra vaccinations while pregnant?

Usually not. As long as the mare has had her regular yearly vaccinations and is in good health she should not need additional vaccinations. The day to day care of a pregnant mare is the same as it was before she was pregnant. If you feel she may need a supplement consult a vet first. It is also important that the pregnant mare stays on her regular worming program, foot care, and light exercise with enough turn-out time so she doesn't get bored and restless. Horses are creatures of habit and some can get upset when their routine is upset. Carry on as usual.
