Tailoring immunization programmes for seasonal influenza (TIP FLU) - A guide for increasing pregnant women’s uptake of seasonal influenza vaccination (2017)

Recommended Posts

WHO recommends seasonal influenza vaccination of pregnant women to protect them and their newborn babies from infection, and to reduce the risk of influenza-related complications and hospitalization. Evidence shows that inactivated influenza vaccines are safe for both pregnant mothers and fetuses during all trimesters of pregnancy, and for breastfeeding women. However, maternal influenza vaccination uptake remains low in most of the WHO European Region, despite widespread national policies.
