Influenza vaccine in pregnancy

Influenza vaccine in pregnancy

Many international forums recommend flu vaccination for all pregnant women during the flu season.
The flu vaccine recommended for pregnant women does not contain live virus strains, but only fragments similar to the virus that induce immunity.

The vaccination recommendation is based on the fact that during pregnancy, pregnant women, due to immunological alterations, can easily get the flu and have severe post-influenza complications.
Consult your doctor about flu vaccination.
