Hello, i would like to know what vaccines are safe for pregnant mares in case i would like to booster other things besides the ones i need for the 5,7 and 9 months. There have been alot of developing around us and I live in an equine neighborhood and more horses are moving in. Can i give her the norm. triple E flu rhino and tetnus. just to be safe. Will it be safe for her and the unborn foal? advice would greatly be apreciated.

You should not give any vaccines the first trimester. Many vets will tell you 90 days others will tell you 60 days. After that you can vaccinate them. You will want to vaccinate 4-6 weeks before foaling to make sure the foal gets the AB in the colostrum.

I've been told to be careful to only give killed virus vaccinations, is that true?

Here's a chart that shows recommended vaccinations:

Yes, it is.
The intranasal flu shot is NOT recommended for pregnant mares, I'm not sure about the IM one, but flu isn't a big risk for my mares so I don't worry about that one.
I vaccinate for rabies/tetanus, Pneumabort at 5,7,9 months, encephalitis and WNV, nothing in the first 75 days and try and stretch it out to 90 ideally. Usually my mares get the rabies/tetanus as pre-foaling, if they're June babies or later then the encephalitis and WNV as part of the pre-foaling too, if they're earlier than that then I schedule those 2 vaccines for either before I breed back or after the 90 days is up.
