Encounters for infertility care are opportunities to assess and update immunization status. Women of reproductive age are often unaware of their need for immunization, their own immunization status, and the potentially serious consequences of preventable disease on pregnancy outcome. The purpose of this ASRM Practice Committee document is to summarize current recommendations regarding vaccinations for women of reproductive age. This document replaces the ASRM Practice Committee document titled, “Vaccination guidelines for female infertility patients,” last published in 2013 (Fertil Steril 2013;99:337–9).
