My wife and I are moving to Dhaka in early August for a two year teaching contract. We just found out that she is pregnant, and we have been told that most of the vaccinations will not be able to be given during pregnancy. She will be seventeen weeks pregnant by the time we move. Is it safe to move to and live in Dhaka without vaccination? Are there any known vaccinations pertinent to living in Dhaka that can be given during pregnancy?
First of all congratultions! I think you can have some injections while pregnant. I found this website helpful in the past and they have a link for Bangldesh http://www.mdtravelhealth.com/destinations/asia/bangladesh.html#3 There are many companies like this that will give you free advice.

Nothing impossible in Biman purchase
From banana to spare parts, everything is bought at higher prices
One dozen of banana may cost Tk 40 in local markets, but if it is bought for Biman, the price is shown Tk 140. Spare parts were bought for two ATP aircraft when they were grounded for sale. Huge money is drawn in the name of repairing engines without repairing those at all.
These are only a few ways to make brisk money by some unscrupulous officials of Biman Bangladesh Airlines allegedly enjoying high-level government backing.
Mindless corruption and inefficiencies in the management have thus put Biman in a bad shape over the years with huge losses.
"The price of an elevator slew switch used for the flight control system was showed in the bill $7,500 although its market price was only $235," Khurshid Alam Khan, a senior flight engineer of Biman, told The Daily Star.
"Such purchase is very common in Biman and some of its officials are involved in the corruption with support from government high-ups," he said.
