CDC recommends pregnant women get flu vaccination

CDC recommends pregnant women get flu vaccination

A study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said pregnant women and their infants are at a higher risk of catching the flu.

Health leaders with the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends a flu vaccine for women who are or may be pregnant during 2016-2017 flu season.

CDC data from an internet panel from October 2016 through January 2017 showed just over 53% of women reported getting vaccinated before or during pregnancy.
