A few reminders about getting vaccinated:
Flu vaccination helps protect women and their unborn babies from getting the flu. Flu vaccination may even help protect your baby from the flu after your baby is born. Flu shots are safe for pregnant women and their unborn babies. The shot has been recommended for pregnant women for many years. Talk to your doctor about the flu vaccination during your pregnancy.
Flu can be a very serious illness for children of all ages. It can lead to severe illness, hospitalization and rarely, even death. Be sure to provide best protection from the flu by getting your child vaccinated. Vaccination is especially important for protecting children with asthma, diabetes or other health conditions. Children under the age of 9 that have never had a seasonal flu vaccine should get two doses of vaccine spaced at least 4 weeks apart. Talk to your child’s doctor or health care provider about getting flu vaccine.
