FLU SEASON IS UPON US!
2019-20 Influenza Consent - Pregnancy
Why does being pregnant put me at higher risk for getting the flu?
Changes to a pregnant woman’s immune system can make her more sensitive to the flu.
You should get the flu vaccine as soon as it is available in your area.
The flu shot is the only flu vaccine approved for pregnant women.
You should not get the nasal spray.
If you get the flu shot during your pregnancy it will provide some protection to your baby after he or she is born.
Once the baby is born, breastfeeding will help your baby stay healthy, especially during flu season.
If you have flu-like symptoms, contact your health care provider as soon as possible.
