Flu Vaccine

The “flu shot” or influenza vaccine has been recommended and funded by the National Immunisation Program for all pregnant women. This vaccine is particularly important for pregnant women as they have a higher risk of developing serious illness if they contract influenza, particularly later in the pregnancy or if they have other conditions that affect their lungs (such as asthma). There is strong evidence that the flu vaccine provides the best protection and is safe for pregnant women.
