Pregnant women are at increased risk for complications from influenza (flu). Complications include pneumonia, hospitalization, and even death. Public health officials recommend influenza vaccination for women who are pregnant or will be pregnant during the flu season.
Pregnant women can be vaccinated during any trimester with the inactivated, injectable influenza vaccine (they should not receive the nasal spray vaccine).
Getting vaccinated is the best and safest way for pregnant women to protect their babies and themselves from flu
Everyone age 6 months or older should receive an annual flu vaccine.
