Pregnancy and the Flu Vaccine
From the CDC - While seasonal influenza (flu) viruses are detected year-round in the United States, flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter. The exact timing and duration of flu seasons can vary, but influenza activity often begins to increase in October. Most of the time flu activity peaks between December and February, although activity can last as late as May.
Our physicians and midwives at Wendover OB-GYN follow the recommendations from ACOG and the CDC that all pregnant patients should receive the flu vaccine during any stage of their pregnancy. It is safe for both mom and baby - Immunizations during pregnancy.
