i think you have to talk to a gynecologist about this. if you are thinking about becoming pregnant or know someone who is the gynecologist should always be consulted about medications or vaccines before hand. tell them everything medicine wise you take. give them a whole list including otc vitamins and herbs. you need to do what is right for your health and the babies health.

Zoster vaccine is not currently recommended for pregnant women as the effect of the vaccine on the fetus has not been studied yet. Women should avoid becoming pregnant for at-least 3 months after Zoster vaccination. If unknowingly one gets pregnant within 1 months of vaccination, you should consult your doctor about the possible risk. But the decision of terminating the pregnancy should not be based on just because of the vaccine alone.
