I need clarity on TT vaccine during pregnancy. How many dosages should a pregnant woman get before delivery and the intervals of this Tetanus Toxoid injection? Also, must it be taken with the anti-malaria drug(SP)3 tablet at a go? Tanks

Usually the gynaecologist prefers to give first dose after the first trimester say 16 weeks and give second at 20 weeks. However you don't have to wait until pregnant, you can take them anytime till you complete the 5 doses
All women of child bearing age should have 5 doses of Tetanus Toxoids ... You can take before or during pregnancy.... It is important to prevent neonatal Tetanus in the newborn baby.
