Influenza in Pregnant Women

Multiple studies have shown no adverse fetal effects from administration of the inactivated vaccine to the mother during pregnancy.

The AAFP and ACOG both recommend immunization for influenza in pregnant women during influenza season.

Pregnant women should not receive the live attenuated vaccine, however.Breastfeeding women should also be immunized, with either the trivalent inactivated or live attenuated influenza vaccine.
